    Nah, I can see plenty of differences:
    1. I don't have a basement full of train stuff... well, I don't have a basement, that's probably the reason
    2. I don't drive six hours to a train show... probably because most train shows are no more than an hour's drive away (except for the one up in Prescott, which is two hours away)
    3. I don't spend overnight when I go to a train show... (See #2)
    4. My wife doesn't get upset when I'm working on my trains...mainly because I can't keep her from doing what she wants to do while I'm there. (The exception to that is when she goes to the train shows with me.)
    5. The biggest difference between us though is that I'm not into Lionel, nor O scale of any kind...
    See, this proves that I'm not hooked. Now excuse me while I go lock myself in my train room and work on my scratchbuild project for a few hours...

    Our daughter's bf is coming in from Germany this weekend to "meet the parents". She told me on the phone today, "Now, Dad, don't try to talk him into trains!!" But I'm bringin' an n-scale loco to show off, ya never know!

    Boy, I get pretty close to this. I still think I'm conscious enough of my train obsession though that it's not a problem. There are a few things I need to do tonight, one being trying to fix a tender that keeps derailing. Rob

    One thing I don't get -- why would he want a 40-watt transformer?

    That's what Lionel runs on :) :) Some are over 100W
  18. 60103

    60103 Pooh Bah

    I meant, does anything Lionel run on as little as 40 watts?
  19. N Gauger

    N Gauger 1:20.3 Train Addict

    Yeah - My 10E runs on 40W :)
