I heard about this place about 30 mins from me. It was a garden center that was a large LGB dealer. Sadly, it went out of business a few years ago and I never got the chance to see it. Its being advertised as the largest privately owned indoor layout.. At 30' x 40' with 600 feet of track, I bet there are larger indoor layouts out there. They are trying to sell the whole kit and caboodle to one buyer. I'm curious to what the reserve is.

Since I don't have the private jet  (Gulfstream 5 or Falcon 2000) to fly there and visit:rolleyes: I'm gonna have to pass.

I too wonder what it will go for.

I think Trainland is bigger. I have seen this layout. It was known as Farmer Falks. It was a nursery/plant place. I think the scenery is all plaster. I doubt anyone could move it. I think you are bidding on a few well worn locos and a few bridges and buildings. I wonder where all the inventory went?

that  largest layout is being sold by a different co now 90210 Hollywood, last 30 days its was sold by a co. with Surplus in the title of the Seller it was $15,000 or best offer now $1000 opening bid, and its around $5000 now would guess they are looking for somewhere around the $15 grand mark, just a heads up the layout is fantastic you can view punch in numer 130192750564 and itll bring it up for you.  Its well worth the price i figure $3500 just for the track thats there, so you would have around 10  of your aristo live steams invested in it.  Just a heads up guys if you thouroughly read the description they are going to add in the pay pal fees at the end after  the winning bid that could be around another $600 added on so just something to think about. Its worth the price i buy if i could but for now ill just DDDDDDDDRRRRRReam about it.

Hey Tommy, I don't got a Gulstream 5, but I do have their catalog! Sometimes I sit around and make "whooshing" sounds and pretend I'm headed off for my villa in Italy. :D

It's sad to see what eventually happens to some of these larger large-scale layouts. I suspect every one of us who has an outdoor setup and those of us who have layouts built into a part of the house have given a great deal of thought to that ultimate prospect. I certainly have.
