    Just launched my celebration space freight set.. running with the ZW-275 transformer...can control four trains at once. I haven’t been to a show or store yet. You really have to see them in person to get the full scale effect.

    One of my co-workers is really into trains, he used to have a very detailed and extensive system complete with little towns and trees and river (seriously amazing detail) in his basement. He just changed jobs and moved, posted images on social media of taking everything apart and salvaging what he could. I don't have nearly that level of patience, but have a lot of admiration for those who do!

    I'd love to see your setup if you don't mind posting some pictures!

    Well I have six trains sets. Four tracks with three transformers. Yes they are always unplugged and I have a fresh battery in the smoke alarm. If you can lay down a twenty foot by six foot track you can get it movin..

    324FE6E6-F2A9-4A0F-AF24-C53F1F6090D5.jpg The forth track will be an inner loop 054 turn because the 777 has extra long weighted pass cars..

    Well his head was actually a pale blue not much red. So my tax. airbrushed the real head. They can pump blood into there neck I guess this is done mostly in spring time strutting.
