 I unofficially call this railroad "Paul's Narrow Gauge". Even my European trains are narrow gauge. It's the common thread.

You do realize, of course, you now have twice as many ways to spend your train money! Just when I was starting to focus on Americanizing / Hawaiianizing things, the local museum let go of an LGB 2080. Now I "have" to get some matching Euro-style freight cars!

Wow ! LGB 2080, the Hartz engine. What a beauty! Yes, matching cars are necessary !

I need to get some proper RhB coaches for my engine as well....

 I have to be careful not to " step on" any scenes, that is to obscure the views we are trying so hard to create.
