I was tempted to make a joke about them being Micro-Trains cars, but then I changed my mind.

Maybe Tom would like to take a crack at weathering ZN scale cars? I just measured them--they're approx. .025 in. long by .004 in. wide... that scales up to 73 feet long by a bit over 11 feet wide--not too bad for eyeballing passenger coaches at 1:35,200.

I can't wait to see this in the store model.

This actually made my day, believe it or not.

Hmmm... a T scale model of a T scale layout... that's 1:202,500. Should be a piece of cake--the trains will be invisible.

This reminds me. A few days ago Willard Wigan was on the Tonight show with a microscope. He said he's sold pieces for up to $80,000 and I just did a search that says he sold his whole collection for $20 million!

Maybe David can retire...

Right. Well. Comes with the territory.

Meanwhile, it picked up another 3,000+ hits just between my last post and this one. This is crazy.

it is at 44,000 right now.  I would sign up for advertising.  It can't hurt, and if it gets to 1M views you'll have a good chunk of change.

Actually, I'm willing to forfeit it. I've already been accused of building the thing just to get some attention on YouTube (which is patently not true, as RW regulars know), and I think advertisements would make it look even more like a stunt.
