I like model trains. There is something about little tiny houses, people, trains, trees, etc. that just feels a little bit magical. Or maybe it is the fact that you can control everything on your layout, unlike the real world. Whatever it is, I like them. We’ve been talking about starting a model train layout since we bought our house three years ago. It’s one of those things that just keeps getting pushed off – we don’t have the money, time, energy, whatever to do it. This year, Santa brought us a locomotive and some track, so no more excuses.
We have a room that was used for storage, that will now be used for a model railroad. I pulled everything out, cleaned it, and painted it. Here are some pictures:
I am definitely not an a painter. Neither is my little boy. But it’ll work.
