    When you steal a train, where do you go with it?

    Yeah I know right? It's not like he has a P-scale layout to run the thing on.. sign1

    Imagine the benchwork required to build a P-scale 4x8 layout (4 x 8 miles, that is..) :D:D:D

    How large would a 4X8 board take up in the real world if it were scaled up from HO?

    (do you get what I mean?)

    Since it's nearly 85 scale feet to the foot...

    340' X 680' ! wow.

    This guy has been getting in trouble for years. I forget what mental disorder he has, but it's similar to autism...if memory serves me.

    He has an obsession with trains, and not like you or I. He can't help it. I'm not sure if that's the real deal, or just some legal jargon to get him out of the amount of trouble he should be in.

    :: looks around with evil grin:: I think Liven_Letdie is on to something! Ya know. There's been a couple times where I have sat back and thought about something like this ever happing and here it is. It would be impossible to hide a locomotive because either way the railroad will know where the thing is do to GPS and CTC systems. )))))LADIES AND GENTALMEN, STEP RIGHT UP TO SEE THE WORLDS MOST OBESSED TRAIN NUT RIGHT HERE!(((((( Elvis has left the building. Sheesh.
