Hi. This is a little off topic, but this is my first topic I have started besides my "Hello, I'm New" topic
Back on topic, I have read and replied to TheBrickster's Topic "Real Water in Your City"
Real Water in Your LEGO City
I responded, and I am quoting
These videos contain NO LEGOs what-so-ever, but I am showing them to you the possibilities of using water on your layout.
After searching high and low for an indoor railroad, I have stumbled upon a G scale video with a nice rustic town with running water, but what I am trying to say is that if they can build an indoor railroad with running water, I'm sure we can too.
Indoor Model Railroad w/h Running water
I have experimented with this a bit. I have found out that if you are using waterfalls, either place the track far away from the "Splash Zone" or use RC Track because I lost some good 9v tracks due to water splashing on the tracks.
Ponds and lakes offer great oppertunities, such as this neat video I found. Its GRAND quality and is part of the world's largest model railroad: Miniatur Wunderland located in Germany. It has floating boats (we could use the LEGO floating boats using Power Functions, but going back on topic) and glass to see underwater.
(I reccomend using the HD and full screen to your advantage)

I hope these little videos I found help inspire you to put real, running water in your LEGO City, Train layout, or just about any other topic that can use a good splash of H20!
