Hi all. After a year or two of hemming and hawing, Santa is going to bring my son a Lionel train set for Xmas. I can't wait to see the look on his face when he sees the Polar Express racing around the tree tomorrow morning. My Son's a little young for this (he's 3), but I figure this will be a great hobby to enjoy and share with him as he gets older. I'm planning on building a 4'x8' table in a spare room. Eventually adding another 4'x8' section down the road. Does anyone have any plans for a table? Preferably one attached to a wall? Due to fiscal restraints I'm not going to be able to buy new track any time soon, so I was thinking about buying a bunch of used track off ebay. What should I be looking for in used track? How do I clean it? What should I expect to pay for it? And if anyone has any tips or tricks they'd like to share with me, I'd love to hear them. Thanks all, and have a Merry Xmas.
