Monumental milestone time. I have decided Mini-me the elder needs a model railway. He has a tendency to stick gerfingerpoken right where I don’t want them so I hope this will:
A) provide him with something to play with and keep him happy;
B) keep him from playing with my stuff;
C) give me a test track longer than 18″ to test my kit on; and
D) enable a smooth transition one day of the Brio from the Elder to the Younger Mini-me.
I have been scribbling on the 6′ x 4′ concept. Not totally sold on that as there will need to be an element of portability about this. We shall see. The diagonal line in the middle is an airfield and with a road too I hope it will be a multi modal toy and won’t just be considered another train set.
