It has been a long time coming. Nearly finished with wiring all the blocks, accessories, lighting and adding sound boards. While my journey started 28 years and 3 transfers/cities ago, the layout phase 1 is almost done. Putting 3 kids through college, caring for elderly parents with their final rest, helping my wife begin her second profession after being that stay at home mom....and now nearing retirement myself. And what a great time it has been.
I have to grin a bit about the angst I'm reading about the closure of MTH. Not that I am a Lionel vs MTH guy. The great leaps and products Mike has brought to the hobby....the competition that has raised the bar....the advances in electronics...quality...etc. Congratulations. And I do miss K-Line..
But my grin is that I still push the lever forward, switch the blocks, walk over to the operating section of track and push the button. And all without software, obsolescence or signal interference......or on a cell phone or iPad.
And yes, I play with my trains...and will continue to do so.
For all of those on the forum that have helped answer my questions, thank you again.
See you on the rails!
