What an absolutely fantastic idea 👍.

I hope you don't mind if I borrow your idea at some point , it'll give me a good excuse to learn how to use my lathe.

My dad has more than that all In the boxes still. I’ve told him they’ll stay with me forever. He has miles of track too :) . 
he’s currently using my old oo gauge Hornby on a massive board  and it’s 35 years old too. 

I’m going to have to use his 3 rail soon now I’ve seen this . He’s also got his original scaletrix set inc side cars , go karts etc from when they started but he is almost 70

Very nice, but I see you quite haven't mastered the art of wallpapering yet.
