I think that is a candidate for 'nominative determinism'  :- James Risner !

So that is what the Romans really intended when they built the colosseum ?

Is K'NEX short for Kleenex, one to be shoved in each earhole?

This is still my favourite N gauge helix:  N-Club International's twin towers and over bridge used as the entrance to the N Convention.

Boy that must have taken some thought to get all the spirals to work.
I would assume that it is DCC and all the locos are in consist.
I can understand why the locos are spaced out along the length  as the friction must be immense and  so they are each pulling their own little piece of the whole length and it is a wonder that they do not all derail in a heap in the centre of the layout

Very impressive but the scenery leaves a lot to be desired.
