View attachment 60982I have been model railroading since the mid-50s but almost never had a fully working layout. Something always gets in the way. As I am now retired and building a railroad "properly" my wife demanded(!!) that I have some people:)

To stop the trouble, I not only have people but I also have cows!

I thought wife avoidance was the purpose of railroading.... :D

I wonder how many couples actually work on their model railroad together?

Start the count at 1. My wife enjoys building structures and dictating the type of scenery that goes on the layout (she is a special fan of bridges). I lay track, paint, build rolling stock, and, and, and, and etc. She will occasionally run trains with me.
