    I live near Christchurch in the South Island of New Zealand where I am retired and spend time playing my 'train room' were we have a layout in Lego.

    We started collecting Lego in 1973 so we have all generations of these 'toy' trains. Some are battery on plastic rails, some a powered from metal rails and later models are infrared and battery powered again on plastic rails.

    I have started to introduce DCC++ to the land of the mini figures and I look forward to discussing this aspect of the world of model railroads.

    4-4-4s are pretty scarce in the real world but anything is possible in Lego..

    There is always need for repairs and routine maintenance!

    Downtown is very cluttered but there are a few trains in the picture and a monorail is a regular sight!

    The Crocodile is one of those trains without which a layout is never complete but maybe one day I will build one too!

    Welcome to Trainboard!

    Holy moly, that's quite a set up you have there!!

    Every train show over here in the States always has a big Lego display and it's just mesmerizing what can be done!(y)

    Hi Dogwood,
    We started buying Lego trains in 1973 and nothing has been planned!
