Train Mountain?!! Start stocking up.

by MephitMark

I've seen a map of the lay out many years ago. Enormous lay out. From what I have heard, the owner wants enough track that a train can run for around six hours before coming full circle. Considering the Shays slow speed, you'd need at least double, possibly triple the fuel to make a full circuit.

Take plenty of pictures please!
