My late Brother, around 1975...

June 18, 2020 02:39AM
Built a AWESOME "N'" gauge train layout in our garage. He spent almost 2 years on it. It was built on a rolling table of plywood and 2X4s that he also made. So help me, he even cut an indention to simulate a small river that he painted a very realistic shade of blue / green. LOL After he was done and he toyed with it for a few months???????? We blew it to hell with fire crackers?? I was about 9 and recall thinking.....This is fun!!! But WHYYYY are we doing this??? It was a helluva layout! As I have said, my Brother is THE reason I got into building models. One of my MAJOR regrets is that we never got together, as adults, and built together.

  My Wife is awesome!
