    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica] Some updated pics after some additional benchwork and storage track construction:

    Now to stow the rest of the boxed trains under the benchwork and hang the side curtains.

    Ran three trains at once yesterday for a while. MUST be on your toes for that one! I need to get the battery cars charged and the Annies converted so I can do more switching. Its not easy doing it with multiple trains and reverse loops on track power. If the real railroads had to endure that we would still be using horse and wagon!

    Ah, I like your wire rack shelving for your ceiling area loop. I've got a pile 10' 1x6 in the garage waiting to be installed in my study but keep putting it off because the room is too small to get a good viewing angle on the trains, and I'm not motivated for the project. The wire rack would give much better visibility. Though plexiglass would be really nice ...

    Footprints on the bottom of your tables? Are you some kind of railroad vampire? ;)

    I love that blue train. I assume that is B&O Royal Blue, am I right?

    its an original CNJ Blue Comet set from Aristo. I saw that footprint when I posted the pics hehehe. I had lumber sitting all over the place here when I was building. Its taken some time to get it to where it looks more like a layout than a disaster area!

    I'll try and oblige the request for the SP pic!

    Thank you for the kind words and encouragement.
