    By themed I don't mean based on something in real life. I mean something like a train set where all the building and trees were candy or like a sci-fi theme. You know, stuff like that. Fictional. Anyways has anyone ever made or seen something like that?

    I know that if I could I'd make a sci-fi one where it's all futuristic looking. :thumb:

    A local N trak club here has a D&D inspired module complete with smoke huffing dragon, castles and such. I'll see if I can't dig up a pic.

    Mine is based on the multitude of old western movies. Although not entirely fiction, most often they were quite liberal in their portrayal of cowboy life.

    Not long ago someone on here was posting asking for ideas for his next layout which was going to be a spooky/halloween theme

    It would have to be a personal module. Then they'd probably not run trains because of running over your module. although thats if you could get a permit for it. :rolleyes: :D

    I build Christmas Railroad during the holidays. I know alot of people does, hoe I got all the way! When I lived in Wisconsin, I added LED light Christmas trees to the layout. Children making snowmen. On my snow covered mountain, I added skiiers. I even sprinkled snow on the trains. Go to www.geocities.com/RockIslandLine2000 and click on "Andy's Models " to take a peek:thumb:

    Ralph Remember...it's for fun!

    Model Railroader magazine, years ago, had a few articles about creative, out of the ordinary themed layouts including one on the moon and another that was all about moving large sattelite dishes around in the desert by rail...might have been for the search for extra-terrestrial life project.... These musings were fun and helped get people to think outside of the box. I wondered if anyone every built one...judgeing by the creativity shown here I'll bet some one somewhere did!

    Have you ever watched any of the Thomas the Tank Engine videos? Some of the scenes are very detailed and pretty neat! My 4 year old has quite a few of the videos and so I have seen a few of them a time or two! :D :D I would love to see some of the sets. I bet the people that got to build it had an absolute blast!
