John Longhurst sent us this very moving story about a man with multiple sclerosis who has built a massive O gauge 3 rail Lionel layout in his basement.
David MacKinnon of Whitney Pier in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia is unable to work because of his MS, and building this layout was his way of coping with the disease. He has been working on the layout for 20 years.
