I am 47. Started in this scale the Xmas of '83 with my first LGB starter set. Used to have a 4x8 Lionel platform which leaned against the bedroom wall most of the time. Slowly increased my collection each Birthday and Xmas. Rarely could do more than run them around the Xmas tree or a small circle on the back patio since I moved a lot. Now though, I have a nice house with a very large patio that we plan to stay in for awhile. I have set my trains up running atop the outside retaining wall and through the patio. Have about a 140' loop with one passing siding in the unused corner of the patio. My focus now is creating a small station and village around that siding. Settled on old western DRGW era a few years back and sold off my Euro stock. I like steam engines because of the moving parts and chuffs. It also gives me an excuse to run short trains. Engines run old MTS IIS because that was the thing back when I bought it in 2002 but will eventually upgrade. Trying to figure out how to set up the track to run more than two engines at a time as I never had the space to worry about it before. I don't really operate my trains as much as I prefer to sit back, relax and watch them with a cigar and tasty beverage.
