Amazing, love what you have done so far! glad: I had the option to buy a 15-inch gauge mining locomotive with a truck engine and chain drive, a few years ago. I have about 1/5 acres on the property and the majority of that is totally flat and devoid of trees. I seriously contemplated building something like this but with wider track for a short while.
That is, until my wife made it clear that I'd have to do the work on the RR as I could afford each piece and that I'd also have to sell my WW2 Jeep and a great deal of my WW2 collection as well.
Needless to say, I passed on that offer. That would have been a 20-30 project before any trains would have run, the way my wife was describing it and I'm not even remotely that patient.

Wow, it's right alongside a sidewalk and street? You are going to have people and cars stopped to watch the train from time to time once it's running! :2t:
