It pays to stop and talk with your neighbors. Today while passing out Neighborhood Watch fliers I spotted Bruce back in the garage with his Dad working on a model railroad. GAWD I love model trains. I had no idea had been doing this back there. If I had I would have been a pest long ago.
I had American Flyer S gauge as a kid, my neighbor and built a huge…2 ping-pong table big S gauge and O gauge train. Bruce is doing all HO and is now getting ready for an expansion. You can get more after the jump.
It turns out that Bruce and his Dad have been quietly building this model RR for nearly 11 years. 2-3 hours a night and he has filled in a ping pong table set complete with mountains and an underground mine with an N gauge train in it.
I love this scene…the bear crossing the shoal at the stream by the fisherman is too much. Its nice to stumble across stuff you did as a kid still being done. Bruce took it way over the top. Nice work. Now I have to go hit the model RR shows and figure out how to get someone to move out of their bedroom so I can do one too. Keeeeeeeeding.
Pics by me with the trusty cell phone. I’ll be back for more and better pics another time.
