G Scale James the Red Engine

Picked up G Scale James the Red Engine from Trainworld:

I have been working on getting the rest of the Large Scale locomotives from Thomas and Friends. Also I found found some cheap LGB track. Still need more. Want to build a small garden railway outside.

Cleaning Up the Clutter on my 4×8 Foot HO Scale Layout

It has been long over due. I am cleaning up all the clutter on my HO Scale layout and starting to finally finish the scenery after 15 years. I would like to build a larger layout but I want to finish this one first

Thomas 75th Anniversary Box

unboxing a massive box

Mattel sent us this gift with no obligation but we had to make a video. After some initial confusion because of a letter with restrictions inside the box, we finally were able to upload this. Thank you Mattel for clarifying that because we needed to have George Carlin in the video.

Thomas and Friends 75th anniversary (Diamond) is celebrated with the box filled with some of Mattel’s recent toys, books, and memorabilia. My personal favorite is the Diamond Thomas diecast Trackmaster engine. Check out the YouTube video to see the contents
