Jake Runnals and I combined to display this train layout at the Great Train Expo in Indianapolis the first weekend in January. I built the alpine mountain and Jake built the city which I thought was amazing considering this was Jake's first major build. The whole thing measured 7 ft. x 34 ft.

So if the BIA takes up two rooms, where does this one go? ...XD
All my bigger projects are designed to come apart in sections and go into custom made cardboard boxes for storage and transportation. They usually only come out to be worked on or to exhibit at a show somewhere.
Hi, this is truly amazing on so many levels! Would you be willing to answer some questions via email from my boys, ages 13 & 15. They are doing a research project for school on Adult Fans of Lego. Working title: "Don't Touch My Lego! Those Are Collectibles!". Too old to admit they still played with Lego but not wanting to give up the world's greatest toy, I introduced my boys to stop motion video using Lego. (posted to youtube under "borg322".) After 20 years raising 4 kids, my sons finally taught me how to build Lego. I cut my teeth on the Market Street - Cafe Corner buildings. Now our entire family is hooked. Obsessed is probably more accurate! Their movies are showing improvement, I'm spending SO MUCH on eBay, and enjoying a family activity together! If you are willing to respond to an email, please contact me at email@example.com
Thanks, Lori, Sam & Brian.
P.S. Will you be displaying this train set up again anywhere?
A Masterpiece!!! Now this is the trainset I always dreamed of having when I was a little guy. The mountain is just amazing to the tracks going in and outside the mountain. There is just way to much my brain is about to explode. Great Job on the build, keep it up!!!
ok, the mountain is fabulous, as all the greenery! i loved the trains, but, the buildings are uneven in building quality, the farm is awesome, while some other buildings where strait from lego, uncustomized, as a whole, it s great! it s just not as great as your other masterpieces, but, as a team, it s harder to achieve what you did by yourself, can t wait to experience it myself! good work, and good luck!
I really enjoy doing landscaping, so this is always a feast for the eyes with the scale and the volume of brick. I can only imagine what your collection will encompass in another twenty years. Meanwhile, it's great seeing this one again. Terrific work, as always!
Another mammoth display. I guess in an ideal world full of Lego for all all the displays would be this detailed. My son loves Percy and Thomas so he was pleased to see those trains working their way through this display.
