A beautiful 12V train collection, (even if I prefer the 9V ones) and good old sets (like the 6380 hosital). It's great, I like your train layout! *y*

I don't know about the single thing ;-) but I do know about the room problem. I'm lucky to have my own room for my LEGO, but there's so much I want to set up and even that room's not enough (I posted a pic in this thread)...  *wacko*

Jake's reefers?

With the 7750 pulling them a great train. Those black doors are some rare pieces. Nice train, nice layout. Can I have it? ;-)

I'm not a 12V train fan, but your city looks great and so classic, with a really lego spirit.  *y*

your layout is an inspiration for us all and was the main reason i started to building a train/town myself
(guess i can blame you for my wallet being empty :-P ) when i get my own place with more space i will probably start collecting 12v myself.

as you are something of an expert on the area perhaps you could answer if you really need the sleapers, wouldnt a 2x8 be equally good?

He probably means if you need the special 12V sleepers or if regular 2x8 plates would suffice.

I had 12V, too, and mixed sleepers and regular 2x8 plates. Worked for me.

Well, the special sleepers makes the track stronger. I use the regular 2x8 plates as an extra sleeper, so it looks like the 9v tracks. But i stand with my feet on the track, so extra sleepers prevent of bending the elec-track.

they placed the original engine on the tender?

man that just suck

your mod seem fine to me, a little question tho
do you use all 28 trains on the track at the same time or do you have half of them on shelves?
im not assuming you can run all of them at the same time tho.

My goal is to place all trains at the layout. Too bad 28 is just a little too much. I think 8 trains cannot be placed at the layout, too less space for it.
At my present layout I can run 6 trains at the same time, without bother eachother.
