Building My New Railroad Layout

About my First Train Layout


When I was young, in the house that was built by my grandfather. my father helped me build a layout in the basement of our house. i remember having some many years of fun working on my layout and running my Ho locomotives around the track. At one point when I got a little older my  dad went down in the basement and came back upstairs and told me a water pipe had broken above my layout, I went downstairs to take a look and everything I had was beyond repair. i was so sad and crying because i love the layout even watching the locomotives run around the track. Now that i am in my later years of my life i want to start to build other layout.
