This Train Layout Took Two Years and 5000 Hours to Build!
76-year-old, Phil Haile, has a lifelong hobby of building electric train layouts. Now, his current layout spans over 1600 square and he's been sharing it with others for the past 17 years during the Holiday Season. The layout pays homage to his hometown with structures he handmade himself that are modeled after real places. There are mountains, a waterfall, amusement park, and even an underground coal mine. It took Phil and his brother-in-law two years and 5000 hours to build.
