Miniature train neologism, part 2

Yesterday I talked about the illusion, after visiting a model train shop, that the entire world is a model train setup. And we discussed a possible new word to describe this feeling.

I like Adrian’s suggestion “Déjà choo-choo”.

Then again, I realized that for me this is not a feeling that diminishes the world, but rather expands it and fills it with wonder. After all, if the entire world is a model train set, then we can make of it what we will. It becomes an object of our creation.

So I think that I prefer a word that suggest the craziness of such an idea, yet also conveys the wonderful feeling that the world around us is filled with creative possibility.

Given that, I prefer the word locomotivation.
