    I am somewhat of a newbie. When all else fails, fill all existing space with trains!
    Now i am the proud owner of 2 11x15 layouts built with a combination of Lifelike steel and Bachmann nickel silver roadbed track. Tonight I linked them using two lifout sections. I am on Dc with a Kit pack on one end and a Railpower 1370 on the other

    Has anyone built a layout of this size using this type of track? I am switching over to the Bachmann. I had a large quantity of the LL track and then decided to get serious. I woul like to be able to correctly wire this layout now. I have 15 switches and am operating manually. I am also looking to block the layout. Thanks for the help. Photos to come.

    You will probably want to replace all of the steel track with nickelsilver.
