Loren and Cab....Just signed on and read the comments from both of you. It sounds like in the long run things would work out better if I could use the larger curves on the layout. I value both of your comments and since you both indicate that this would be the best plan, I will try to expand to accomodate the larger curves. I have almost got the room ready to prime and then paint and the tables will be reset again. By the way, the tables that I am using are oak tables that I got at a school auction. They are tables that were used in the Lab and are really hefty. All along the sides there are openings similiar to drawer openings but without the drawers (sort of pigeon holes). I was thinking about using these for storage of train related items. I may take a picture and post it so you can see what I have. I'll keep you posted. Loren I pray that your wife's health will improve.
