I was talking to my dad, just before my birthday. He offered me money for a present and I said I would appreciate anything for my HO train layout. And what a surprise! Three boxes arrived the other morning. 2 boxes about 12" x 16" x 6" and the third, a whopping 2 x 3 x 1 feet! First small box is full of sectional track and a girder bridge. Second box is full of rolling stock! Including 4 powered units. The big box is a pile of buildings, people, animals and wagons! Including buildings my dad built when I was a kid and were on our big layout we had at the time. I was so excited I ran out and bought a web cam so I could take some pix and share them with you. Here is the first pic of the Wake Up Jake restaurant. It is a replica of the real building in Barkerville Historic Park.
