Nice!! I remember responding to your post about the Menards buses a few months ago. I noticed you have a Santa Fe Trailways bus on your layout, so they must have passed the 1/64 test. Smile

Nice layout. But they can't be electric trains, there's no middle rail...lol

Major, 

Thanks for starting the thread this week and for posting the photos of your beautiful American Flyer S gauge layout.  American Flyer S gauge was and always will be my first love in collecting toy trains.  It was the only train that I was allowed to run around the Christmas tree when I was a child.  I still have a large collection in boxes.  My collecting energy has been directed at Pre War Flyer for a while now, but I know that one day I will return to my roots.

Thanks again for posting and for bringing back some great memories.

Enjoying the World's Greatest Hobby

As some have said on this site it is not the size of the layout that matters but what you do with it. My layout started as a  4'x8' Christmas train garden with removal senic features and it still can be taken apart now. The only part that is permantly applied is the American models track on the lower level. All of the hill slopes, upper level and tunnel are removable pieces.  You can see from some Christmas pictures taken two years ago that many of the ideas on the layout now were in embryonic stages then.

If I hadn't been dreaming (working) on my Christmas layouts since May, I'd certainly be in the mood now!  Big Smile
