    *wipes drool from mouth*

    I I can barley talk right now. To have a layout that BIG! That is like the ultimate dream. Keep on growing and don't feel to bad if you choose to knock a wall about 40 feet farther out!

    EXCELLENT layout.

  7. Very nice Ray, I'm a newbie here but just had to comment on your fine work. Wow, a yard big enough to get lost in! I like the service bays and shop buildings, the track arrangements look very realistic. Congratulations! :D

    Ray,

    Fantastic layout! My question is: How do you maintain all the track? Do you have pop-ups? What tools do you use to keep all the track clean? Track cleaning cars? Solvents?

    I'm also building a large layout and I'm getting concerned that I'm going to be spending more time cleaning than operating.

    Thanks.

    Have been fallowing your layout, looks great.
    About track cleaning, I Pull (6) rail cleaners by Centerline Products, and Goo Gone. one wet, two dry, one wet , two dry. I make sure the wet ones stay wet the entire time. I run 3 to 4 passes on all track every three months or so. This does a good job for me. I also have a wheel cleaning station for my locos.
    If you run often, you will find you don't have to clean so often.
    Happy modeling.

    True! My mainlines never get cleaned unless I haven't operated for quite a while and they have dulled.

    Mostly they are kept shiny by the passing trains (as in real life:) )

    It's when you decide to shunt (switch) some cars into a little used siding that you realise how long it's been since you cleaned the tracks!!
