The whole point of this book is simply to show another approach to doing Model Trains. Instead of a board with an oval and few switch tracks, you can do much larger while taking up less space. And you can create and not be limited. My model trains mostly sat in boxes until I did what I showed in this book. And the hobby was then no longer a toy and a lot more fun after that, and I am never going back. Thank you for reading, Mike J. Scheerens
