    The trees are from Woodland Scenics. About Z gauge, I don't know. They come in a package from 2" to 6".

    Went out to the building to figure about how much main line. Best I can figure, without measuring is 500 ft. X 2. Double mainline. As I can remember, I bought a LOT OF TRACK. The person I bougth from was very happy with me. Now the work is almost over I can enjoy running.

    500 feet! That's alot Ray! How many boxes of flex did you go through? I've used 4 so far, and I think by the time I'm done, it will be 5. I bet your yard alone used 2 boxes!

    Ray, your main yard, do you have a scetch of the track plan for it? I like big yards, and yours takes the cake for the biggest yard I've ever seen on a layout! It would be neat to see the way traffic flows in there.

    Re: ANOTHER

    That staging yard, (on page 4 of your thread) is INSANE! How long is it? Where on the layout is it located, we really need a track plan Ray!

    Now that the layout is about finished, well I guess it's never finished, I will spend some time working on a track plan and post it for everyone.
    The yard area is 26 1/2 feet long, and the stageing area is 29 feet long. I hope this answers some of your questions. About the number of boxes of track, I don't remember. It was a LOT! The ATLAS track, 100 in a box. PECO track, 25 ina box.

    Strange EH Ray sure don't know why the full photo didn't upload in a couple of cases. Sometimes the web seems to get jammed up. Dave Hagan warned us of a possible downtime as changes were being made Maybe thats what happened
