The Gotham City & Metropolis Railroad is the fictional line connecting the 2 famous DC Comics Cities in HO Scale. The layout is in an 11' x 14' room in a basement. It is a switching layout with the added benefit of a continous loop. It was started in March 2006 and as of Fall 2011 it is 99% complete in terms of scenery. Besides the railroad operations, the layout features many of the Heroes and Villains of the DC Comics' Universe.
