Thank you very much (in my best Elvis accent!). Just keep in mind that this is my 11th layout and I've been dinkin' around with N gauge since I was 8 years old (30 some years now). I have not looked around Model Rail Structures but thank you for the link as I will have a lookysee. Well, I stopped by An Affair with Trains on my way home this afternoon looking for farm/ranch details and got a little carried away with figures. By the way Phoenix people, they have a pretty neat overhead layout hanging from the ceiling now (G scale)!
