Not mine either but is just the sort of thing that would appeal to a very young, first time modeller.

I'm going to be a Grandfather to twins shortly and I'm hoping one of them is a boy which would give me an excuse to build something like this for him.

Yes Chinahand I see your point if it gets youngsters started in the hobby then I suppose it's a good thing otherwise the hobby will die out.

Lots going on and no doubt plenty of fun....when you quickly look at the layout it looks like a scalextric set or maybe it's just my eyes !

what happens, Trev, if they are both boys? Twice the fun?

Then I guess they will have to share it.

Don't know what I'm going to do if they're both girls though.  :hmmm:

My pal, who is a railway fanatic, had 3 daughters. They all had train sets. Now he has male grand children, they have train sets, so don't give up hope Trev.

You'd need a one track mind to plan that lot out!!

Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

Given sufficient time, exposure to light and a steady diet of flexitrack, the infant layout shown in the first video will grow up into a big strapping room-filling monster.

How do you plan something like that?  :admiration:  :goggleeyes:
I have enough trouble trying to plan a single-track branch line!
