Well. as some of you know i'm 16, creating my HO scale layout on 4x8 whihc has a turn table. my Brother 18, is very intrested in Thomas the Tank engine. And on the model railroad hes only worried about playign with his eninge making lil stories about the gang meeting new engines and working, stuff liek the show. Scince this is his only motive out of the model railroad. He inturupts me in my work, by requesting me to leave items like Turntables,eninge sheds, etc. all the bought items from Hornby unpainted to just add them in the railroad and leave it. BUT they look like cheap plastic. I'm trying to make everyhtign fall into place, make it look good, make an adult professional railroad. with opperating scheems, and rollingstock that needs to be dilevered to diffrent locations. So and so. but my brother only wants the lines to play thomas up and down, like a story. and hes says the model railroad is for playing. Playing - PLaying with ur trains means running them. hes 18 dont u think its time to run it proffesionaly? I eman id luv to live the past time with my bro making up lil stories. but if the hole concept of this railroad is for that, then no. i built this rail road wanting to show it at shows. i intead to do that. Whos side would u take?
