This is kind of a quickie post today. I took these photos some years back which shows a fellow TTOS members Norm K's Christmas layout. It's not decked out for the holidays but Norm only put the layout up for a few months of the year. The layout is Standard Gauge, and those familiar with these wonderful, large, rumbling beasts know what a glorious din they make! :-) They are big, and colorful, and loud - and Grand! Anyway, the photos should show that you do not necessarily need a whole lot of room to run these big trains. Enjoy!
