I suspect not as seriously as my friend, whose train set is in a league of its own and looks nothing like my 1980s Hornby (much as though I loved it). He chose the whole house on the requirements of the layout and uses scheduling, signalling and control systems that railway engineers would be envious of. One of his suppliers recently filmed a promotional video which is here in three parts.
You gotta have a hobby.
