    My kid's borderline obsessed.
    He lines the trains up perfectly, they all have to go the same way, and must have the correct tenders with them.
    If I move them around when he's not looking, he freaks out.

    My nephew is exactly the same. I am also a perfectionist on my layout as well.

    I made a steam train in metalwork at school.
    It worked, but I got impatient with how long it took to build up a head of steam, so I tapped the boiler filler, put in a tyre valve and ran it on compressed air.
    It fucken flew !
