    Here is the layout I have been working on this weekend for my two grandsons (Gavin and Ryan).
    It will sit on top of the existing wooden train table.
    They already have locomotives with sound and many pieces of rolling stock.
    I plan on using 2 MRC Tech 6's so they can access the sound and run on DC.
    Hope you enjoy.

    Looks like fun! Great job! Your grandsons are going to love it! I have 2 grandsons as well, although they are a little young for their own layout, someday I'll be doing the same thing!

    Here is the latest progress. The control panel is made and the location of the Tech 6's is determined and velcroed down. The 110 V switch is on and the power cord and receptical are on. I also got the other two LH turnouts and placed them. I have 4 more feeders to place and the remainder of the track can be screwed down.
