Alan’s been in touch with some model train fun that had me smiling.
In yesterday’s post (which you can see here) we touched on the importance of having fun with your layout, whatever that may be.
Some like scenery. Some like running trains. And some like both.
But as long as you’re having fun, that’s all that matters.
And Alan shows this in spades:
“Hi Al enclosed pictures of my newly erected elevated Kato with the cheap Kato unit in dark green ascending and descending.
As you can see a mix of all sorts all mixed up but as Dangerous Dave commented, as long as you enjoy it forget the purists.
Also I have just built my local Leeds United ground in Lego – 4000 pieces and because planning permission from my wife has been declined it will be in the loft with the Kato layout.
Hope you can display

Alan’s lego stadium really did make me smile.
If you have any thoughts on having fun, and ignoring the purists, I’d love to hear them – please do post a comment below.
Everbody is different when it comes to enjoyment. I know some of you don’t concern yourselves with any scenery at all, and are perfectly content just running trains.
Other just throw themselves into the scnenery side of things, and effectively create large dioramas.
But do you know what? Both are fine. Both are fun. It’s your layout, do as you please…
Personally, I’m all for some model train fun whatever that may be.
That’s all for today, folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
It’s become very thin on the ground all of a sudden this end.
And if today is the day you stop dreaming, and start doing, don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here.
I know I keep saying it, but it’s the start that stops most people.
