Starting at ~age 3, my son Calvin used to bring the newly-arrived MR mag's to me [when I still had a subscription] and sit there with me while I unwrapped it and glanced thru it. Then at about age 7, he discovered the wide world of sports cars and that became his True Love...SpaceMouse said:But how many 6 year-olds read MR?
Nope mine don't. I did have one I built back in the late 70's 5x9, and the biggest thrill was building it. I soon tired of it (just took an hour or so) and let the kids run it while I found something more interesting. One afternoon I found them crash testing my trains for head on collisions. It had a very short life after that. LOL I didn't even get to finish the scenery. Some of the remains are still visable in the back 40. Cheers WillisDon't ALL model rr'ds go around and around?
I already have one, it's called fumble fingers or something like that, every loco that was tested failed miserably Extensive repair with reinforcement was always necessary.Every self respecting modeler need a crash test facilty.
that's very true, but heck I don't even know if I'll be satisfied with what I've built. It was great while I was thinking about it, but NOW, time will tell. Actually I like the building aspect of the hobby more at this time."different strokes for different folks"

Bob you have to be kidding, my opinion of it was it made a nice race track not much operation in that. Could be I don't have a vivid imaginationand packs a lot of operation into a small space.
