FWIW. Have fun looking for the technically challenged bridge. Jose.

Oh hey, that's Northlands in NJ. I've been there a couple of times. It's a massive place, the pictures don't do its justice. The only downside to it is that there is no purpose to the fictional world. When you go you will see train bridges that have no tracks that lead to them, roads that begin and end randomly, and loops of track that never reach a destination just stuck on the side of a mountain. But besides that there are whimsical parts to it, for example a mini golf course all on stilts, or a house surrounded by a quarry pit. In all its fun to go to with younger family members, they're the ones that really enjoy it.

Now there is a man that can get enough of bridge building... He even built a roller coaster on the layout.

Well, a layout never gets finished because, as time goes by, every time we declare it "finished", we start redoing the worst eyesores (or more "technically/technologically challenged areas") ........ if we don't rip the whole mess out and start all over again. Or move. Extra points for changing scales. Jose.

It's not the size of the layout that counts... but how you use it. Just sayin'...
