    Hi David,

    You're right! There are too many isolated sections there, the section can be a single piece and work the same, but with less wiring. I have updated the drawing to reflect the changes....

    Thanks for pointing this out. I have also updated the site to refelect this change.

    The rails that seem to go nowhere were the lead into the engine house. The railroad acutally laid portable sections of rail across the turnout!

    This section consists of 4 curved 3 way turnouts.

    Whoa! I had to look for a minute to convince myself that that first shot of the completed Section 6 wasn't another CGI.

    I just cannot imagine how to bend all those tracks in those perfect shapes besides the fact that I cannot imagine to figure out what shape they should be.
    You will have a layout that does not even need any engines and cars and still will keep visitors watching it for hours.
