It's been a long time since we have run trains for the public at MrMuffin'sTrains. We pulled the Carmel layout down last fall, and relocated our shops and inventory to Atlanta, Indiana, just north of Indianapolis.

As you might have read, we bought a second building in Atlanta and moved the retail store down the street, with our shipping and receiving and train repair work shop. This let us use the entire first floor of our first building for the layout and my collection. Korber Models is located on the second floor with some artist studios from Nickel Plate Arts.

Not much of the scenery is in place, but we are running trains on Saturdays again starting this Saturday, from 10-3.

Here's a view of the layout. People that have visited us this week for a preview have commented about how much they like being surrounded by the trains as you can walk into the layout from the far side of this photo.

There's still much to do!

It appears to be a wonderful space for your 'empire' Steve!

On a day to day basis, do you get a lot of foot traffic through your stores?

That layout build was really fast, and big! You have all really gotten a lot done in a short time and I'm sure you are excited that trains are now running. Great progress!! Good luck with the train running on Saturday.

If I wasn't about 8.5 hours and 550 miles away (per Google maps), I would love to come. I will have to make a road trip one of these days, would love to see your layout and store someday.

Looks wonderful, good luck with layout, looking forwarder to some videos.

Wow, you folks sure work fast! I think a lot of us would still be ruminating over whether or not we had the track plan "just right" and other similar distractions--fantastic.
