Been inspired by your emails to build a train layout inspired by my grandkids’ interest in Harry Potter.
We acquired the train while on vacation in Orlando, FL while visiting Universal Studios Harry Potter exhibit.
I’ve spent the last three months putting this together only to realize a 10 foot by 14 foot room is just too small.
Will be reassembling and expanding into a 17 foot by 17 foot space in the basement. Wish me luck.

My latest video seems to be generating considerable interest.
I thought your readers might enjoy a little frivolity on a model train layout, or what I consider good old fashioned fun.
I did a series on how I built the road these vehicles follow a few months back and if enough would be interested, I can send that link too.
But this one is about running my Faller vehicle and how I added headlights and tail lights to it. It was quite a trick. If I was an electronics whiz it would all be easier, but alas I am not. I am a mechanical guy.

A huge thanks to Michael and Rob.
I can’t wait to see Michael’s next update – he’s got off to a smashing start.
And Rob has hit the nail on the head – his video really is good old fashioned fun.
That’s all for today folks, please do keep ’em coming.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here if today is the day you take your first step to making your very own layout.
