An HO scale layout built for operations, it began 6 years ago and now it is 90% complete. Pretty neat. Can handle about 8 operators. The Great Lakes Western is a fictional HO railroad depicting railroading around the Chicago area in 1960s. It uses real city names and the mix of rail-served customers and industries has been carefully designed to support realistic operations. The idea is to provide a midwestern setting where both East Coast and West Coast interchange trains would be appropriate.

There is also a garden railroad which I saw outside when I first entered. Not running tho.
Afterwards we went to a local Mexican restaurant for Taco Tuesdays. I had the $2 cheese enchilada. Welcome to retirement. Hehe.
