He is so right.
Getting back involved with trains and building a layout was on my mind for many years before I started the physical construction of Warrenville in 1983. It has grown and changed many times, and continues to do so, even after 36 years. I'm even planning some more updates as I noted in my recent post in the What did you do on your layout today thread.
Alan, should you be so inclined, you can read about Warrenville's evolution on my website (below). Thanks for this interesting, and I hope inspiring to some, editorial.
So guys and gals, how long have you been working on your layout??
