    My boy gets to play carefully on my N scale layout as it's much more forgiving of little hands. Here's his latest scenic creation. Look at it like you would one of those "Find the Mistakes" puzzle pictures to truly appreciate his work...:thumb:

    That's just too cool.

    I know people that wouldn't let kids anywhere near their layout, but as I always tell him, how much damage can one kid do? If they break something, so what? You built it once the first time, you can certainly fix something broken on it later on.

    Or at least that is the approach *I* take. My little brother when we were kids used to TERRORIZE my layout. Finally I just decided to let it go. But, when I invited him to run the layout and play with it, the layout started holding up to him playing with it a lot better. He actually learned how to model railroad. Otherwise, he'd sneak around when I wasn't home and tear stuff up. I learned something too: He was fun to railroad with, so it was a win-win all around.
