Yes, that could come to pass.  I'll have to consult with @DKS about designing a coin operated controller! :D

At the Chuck E. Cheese in Augusta when I was a kid they had a token operated train layout. You put the token in, the train did a few laps, and then you got like 2 or 3 tickets. The question becomes what would be the best thing for the layout to give you in exchange for a token?

A ticket that says you can sleep inside.




First switch list is in the books.  Only had to go into the tunnel access once, and technically, that was before the job started.
I've got to call the Union, though.  The brake man keeps trying to eat the telegraph poles.

Happy Hi Railing!

Oh yeah!  We Hi Railin' now!





I even found a Pocket Camera with a Magicube flash to get these awesome shoots!  Just picked them up at the Fotomat!

Arnold steams up the place as the Royal Blue makes the rounds.

Nice! Are the lights inside most buildings blue, or is the camera's white balance confused?
