I find the concept of time machnine and your own experience, transferred into diorama fascinating…This is a guy who spent his lockdown period wisely ;)

That train layout is amazing. I tell people one of the reasons I enjoy wargaming so much is that we get to game on a constantly changing diorama. There isn't a wargamer I know who hasn't used model railroad ideas on their tables or basing a figure. Plenty of great ideas going back and forth between the two hobbies.

Yes, I turn to model rr often for ideas and "the right look" on my soldier table. Thanks for posting. Maybe we should have a model rr board. (?)

It is amazing, often tell people when talking about my collection of 15mm Napoleonics that had I not done them might have stayed collecting HO trains I had as a kid, the money spent might have had quite a nice layout as well.

That's a nice layout and I am glad he got a chance to indulge and find his happy place doing it. Too many people never try to do that and instead just go on being miserable.
