I ran four tracks down the hallway of my house to show off four of my G-scale model trains. These are big model trains that are hugely bigger than the little HO scale trains that most model railroad people have. With four tracks in the hallway, there isn’t any room for people to walk!
The trains head outside and take a loop around my side yard and then in to the garage, through the kitchen and the living room, and then back outside again.
You get a look at an Amtrak passenger train by MTH trains, a LGB brand replica of the White Pass & Yukon Route Railway, the Santa Fe Super Chief, and a steam train from Switzerland’s Rhaetian railroad.
This is just part of my collection of model trains. A frequently asked question is “what does all this stuff cost?” I’ve acquired it a piece at a time over a period of years. What you see in this video cost in excess of $5000 and I’m sure the entire collection cost in excess of $10,000. Each one of the locomotives cost approximately $1000, each rail car about $200, and each foot of track about $6.
