I think of all your trains that you have, the Santa Fe Super Chief is my favorite set of them all.
I only wish I had the money to have a nice big set up like yours.
Of course, I would only have the Santa Fe super chief and maybe a Burlington Northern Santa Fe freight train set up. I would probably go so far as to add a lot more cars to the freight train set up that you have going, because I love those long freight trains.

That is so cool how you set up your train set around your drive way. Can you setup your trains around your house and through your house. That would be awesome to see. O and my favorite one is the BNSF train. Thank you.

The price of G gauge track is insane or I would have a layout in my back yard. Where is some Chinese manufacture cause then it would be $1 a foot! Well maybe it is made there and just how it is marked up.

Hello. I loved this vid and the one with the Thomas. Was wondering how you got the trains to keep from crashing. I am trying to do the same with trains on one track circle with a switch to the outer circle

Hi Jim! Is that Number 1 Gauge trains in your driveway? I was a garbage man for 8 years and I found about 20 train sets-Lionel, Marx and American Flyer. Most of them had missing wheels and no track but the engines ran just fine. My favorite was a Lionel Coke Train built in 1974. I have added more box cars-Orange Crush, Dr. Pepper and Pepsi and a Jack Frost Sugar hopper car. The train looks awesome. I also have the Blue Comet set with 12 coaches and the Marx trains will have 20 cars on both. I will set up all 4 trains in my living and dinning rooms once a year. Maybe you could be a garbage man too and find lots of trains!

Mate I loved all of the set up.
I've dreamed of having just part of what you have.
I tried in the late70s to do it but brothers kept wrecking my stuf.
so tried again late 90s had a great little set up till i got robbed.
All I got left is a lot of old carriages passenger & frieght.
I put my dream on hold the train stuff here in Australia just seem to be Chinese knock offs.
Any way looks great and love the vid

Is that a DCC set-up I saw in the corner of your garage? I would imagine that the voltage drop-off for DC over that length of track would be severe and I didn't spot any additional wiring.

Nice collection!… I’m jealous! It great to have so much space to layout track. I did notice you have a mow strip between the lawn and the planters… might think about a long haul train to utilize the that run. Congrats to you’re retirement. I’m jealous

Another great layout Jim. I'm always intrigued by the complexity of these layouts and how you are able to run the trains so close together. Your narration is always a plus to the videos and your camera skills including with the drone make for very professional videos. Congratulations again.

Amazing great job 👏 you did with the train layout. I totally love these train setups. I wonder if someday they’re would be a layout just as big as the NYC Subway system. My passion for trains and buses are on the top especially public transit systems. Excellent work to create this wonderful project of dedication with trains.
