    Nice to see that people who could fly at light speed in hyper-drive ships still like to take the train. :)

    I bought the droids on a whim as they are close to S scale in height may try to include them on layout some where:thumb:


    back in the dark ages of the internet , when S-trains was just forming i talked to a lot of
    flyer fans and other train people as well and quite a few of them had fantasy or other whimsical detail/scenery on their layouts, one had a wizzard of oz theme with a pop up book emerald city for a back ground . Anyone else do anything out of the ordinary:mrgreen:

    For the garden railroads there was a magazine called A.W.N.U.T.S (Allways Whimsical Not Usaly To Scale) Lots of cool kitbashing and scrathbuilding:cool:

    Star Wars and trains, good combination!:thumb:
    Now mix Trains, Star Wars, and Lego blocks and you have the trifecta of happy times :)
    I love whimsical railroads. Can never argue if they aren't prototypical.
