    Me too. That barge would be approximately five feet long in HO scale. add another foot for a tug, plus some tow line. You would need a swimming pool to display it in.

    Very neat! I have a car float with two tracks that can accommodate ten freight cars. The aqua train looks like a yard with a hull! :)
