Research on Building a New Layout

My son Anthony is now 5 and we have alot of trains just sitting in the closet. We’re both excited about the idea of building a Lionel layout in the new house. We’re currently researching and we’ll document our progress here.

The first open is how big should we make it? Here’s a great 4×8 one we’re looking at. We do know we’re going with O-guage and Fast Track.
