Thanks for the inspiration. I have 2 grandsons, 9 and 18 months. I hope to have a backyard, 1" scale, riding railroad for them to enjoy next summer - okay, it's for me too!

Hi James Valdez Very nice to visit your family photos on your website, Tx
nice to meet you
Jaime, nice looking website! Anything new since 9-1-2004 update? Go railroading!!!
enjoyed your site. I am thinking of doing this on my property. Something different for people and kids to see and enjoy in our small town of 5000. Thanks again for sharing your dreams and family photos.
hi. nicely put together website! visit my page at phatfamilyof8.tripod.com .
Take the spaces out on either side of the @ (to foil automatic spammers). Thanks for showing what you can do with minimal equipment and $. Your tips will be most helpful if I get to 1" scale. I saw and rode RidingRail Kits demo at the July 05 Garden Railway show in IL. I would have plunked down the $4600 for the detailed / sound equipped kit, except for the fact that my central A/C died that morning and gobbled up $4600! The recent price increase may have put the kabosh on building a line.
Really enjoyed the pictures of your layouts especially the little one running all over the yard.

Thank you for sharing your site. J D
Nice layouts. Great tips also on the 1" scale. Thanks
Hi Jaime, I am getting into 1" scale now. Already have N gauge, HO gauge, O gauge, G gauge. Now, the next step. Keep up the good work.
Veri nice site, I enjoy all things trains. Myself, currently, 4'x8' HO, 3'x5' N, and almost 13'x30' (app.) oval in basement of (G) Large Scale.
Swell site. Really enjoyed seeing your layout. I am interested in starting a layout, I have a one-acre lot to work with (with house, pool and shed) and would also like to use it for a Christmas display. I now own two G-scale trains which I set-up around our Christmas trees and a small N-scale which is on top of our counter between the kitchen and family room, with a small christmas tree inside to circle. This would be a dream come true to have a layout similiar to yours. Good Luck as you continue. I will be checking back to see how it is coming. Dennis Andrews, Spring Hill, FL.

Mr. Valdez, What a great wed site. I'm getting interested in model railkits and you have provided me with a lot to absorb. You generosity of knowledge is much apreciated. Should I take the next step and actually purchase a railkit I would like to contact you for advise. Thank you 12.29.04
Jaime, Thanks for the great site! I don't have much time for trains, but enjoy viewing others' work via the web. Keep up the good work! Sincerely Marcus Vincent
