Erik’s birthday present _ the LGB Genesis that is almost the same size as Erik. His first “modern” locomotive, nicknamed “Genny” for genesis.
To the left of the firehouse is the scratchbuilt Model Railroad retail shop that Erik designed and built from legos. Not from a kit, he drew up plans and then assembled.
Benchwork was created with clear pine 1X4s and, most importantly, metro shelving with wheeled casters. This makes the benchwork sturdy yet extremely lightweight and easily repositionable.
