Makes you want to add a section of rack railway,
just to have a switch like that.

Certainly would open a few eye's.

If I were to build a layout with all the stuff I want,

would have to be inside an airplane hangar, multilevel... and in Z scale.

Also I would have to live at least forever.

A rack railway is a must for any serious layout.


Along with a trolley line, narrow gauge operations with three rail sections,

and of course some river or lake with real water,

and an operating, radio controlled paddlewheeler.


Anything I have forgotten?

Oh, the monorail....

An airport.

And a decent-sized seaport.

And a full-scale rendition of the Altoona shops at their peak.

And a mile-by-mile Maine two footers (all of them).

A sequoia forest.

and... and...

Jose.
