    I am in the early planning stages of laying a G scale layout in my yard. I am planning on making it roughly a 60 foot long reverse loop with a 6 or 8 foot diameter turnaround at one end. Half of the turn around loop will be approx. 4 ft off the ground. Any tips, site, books, etc on how a brand newbie can tackle a trestle of this magnitude the first time out?[​IMG]

    Thanks in advance

    Howdy, you will like this site I will give you as almost all there stuff is G or the big stuff. They have lots of "how to" threads as well. Worth a look.
