WOW, that is nice looking Model & Toy Steam Engine Room and have it
laid out so well. Your display is so well organized it looks like a small
museum. I also enjoy the video.

Thanks Carl I have spent a few days cleaning it up so it was an opportune time to do an updated tour.

My two grandchildren were here yesterday and they each picked out 3 engines and we spent the day running the 6 engines a very enjoyable day. The eldest James who's 8 wants to bring his class out for an excursion  :o :o :o

I've been "in" this totally amazing steam room before, but certainly enjoyed visiting here again!

Jim, I need to get you some plane tickets, so you can come over and organize my total mess!?!?

Anyone ever wants any of those poster/ads to print out (all photoshopped and edited to print out very nicely on photo paper) don't hesitate to contact me.

One of each please .....   ;c)

I do truly think they are splendid Jim, especially in all the little dedicated cubby-holes that look to be individual mini-dioramas in their own right.

However, those posters really wouldn't work well here at all, as wall space is already at a premium around here. Nice as they are, I'll simply have to enjoy them right where they are currently located. Fortunately, buy posting this up, you have given me an open invitation to come visit and view them most anytime that I want, so I thank you for that !!!

I am as always so utterly impressed, by your ability to squeeze in so much in a room, while still being able to keep it functional and perfectly organised.

Well done Jim, and thanks for sharing !!!
