over here land is relatively cheap so the major cost of a large space often becomes heating and cooling it. I live in a mild climate but my workshop/train room is still too hot or too cold to work out there about 25% of the year so I have a small N scale secondary layout in the house ....DaveB


Yeah I know Dave I am just jealous because i would love a place that size to build a big big layout, as well as somewhere to hide from the wife.

What makes you think that he can hide from me in there?

Besides that, it is my layout as well.

Inside the TT-scale layout? :think:
Ok, try to model this scene:

(It is giant human head from Russian epic fairy tale "Ruslan and Ludmila", a poem by Alexander Pushkin)

No not you Catt I was refering to hiding from my wife, unlike you she has no interest in trains at all and sees my interest in trains as something quite weird.
Therby the thought of a train room for me is a non-starter thats why i'm jealous

Great space!! Nice that your dedicated space is on 'ground level' too, right? Being in the UK my efforts are constrained to the loft. Not London, though, because then I'd be building a shelf layout :!:

Trying to get my wife interested in making buildings. Also, she loves the little Preiser and Noch people figures. Helps to have a child/children. I often use my son as an 'excuse' for my interest. He will learn about geometry, electronics, mechanics, geography, etc ... plus it will help keep him away from the telly and computer.

Exactly Juup great to hear that from you, my interest in TT spans over fifty years now and all because of so many happy memories of dear old Dad making various things from card and balsa wood because he could'nt afford the Tri-ang one. Needless to say though we didn't have a TV either in those days. However the point is all about doing things with mutual interest and sharing, I am sure that doing this kind of stuff with my Dad kept me out of trouble in later life as I had learned values but not just told them.
