I think most of those in the ride on scales view it that way (amusement park ride).   For most it's all about building, displaying and riding on the trains.  I guess my view is a bit different (not unusual for me).  I want to USE the big stuff to RAILROAD.  (There IS a growing movement to operate ride on trains using car card operation.)

If I am able to build what I invision and get it to operate reliably I think it will be the ultimate "close focused" model railroad.  Maybe the best way to do this is to be dismounted and running the engine by radio control?  A true, really BIG SCALE, model railroad.
