I like the 0N30 gauge due to its detail, it forces me to up my game and create more detailed landscapes and buildings.
Often, in the middle of the night. I will sit down and pretend that I am walking down the dirt roads or standing in the shadows watching the train as it carries its load around the layout.
For me; it's a form of escape. I become immersed in
the layout and drift into my creative side.
If I get hung up in my writing and the words log-jam
in my mind, I will sit at the railroad and believe that
I am only one inch tall.
My dad gave me my first train set a long time ago. I was hooked the moment he set up the track and I watched the engine tear around the loop.
I remember the smile on his face. He knew what he was doing.
I hope he watches the trains on my new layout; perhaps he wanders through it while I am not watching.
