After Christmas we got home and the kids said they wanted to play trains!

My 2 year old daughter insisted that my full size viaduct plans needed color.

I sometimes felt guilty taking time away from my family for my hobby when I was doing the initial railroad construction using power tools and whatnot.

But now that I'm making my first attempts at scratch building, and the indoor layout is operational. I feel more than justified because the kids want to help. and the young minds have the imagination I've lost to make pretend operations more fun. Full emergency stop for a cow on the track, imagining red light green light....

My wife has the videos on her phone of the kids helping me glue together our first flat car based on the masterclasses, and then sanding that car at the dining room table.

These are the memories that will keep me going in large scale. Beside the fact that I love live steam.
I feel like I'm not unique in this regard.
