Loren, I am about done with the layout except for the connecting bridge between the tables and for some wiring. I ended up with two tracks as you can see and I am still planning so to how to install the turntable. My two grandsons are now able to run two trains. We have two controllers. One of the most interesting aspect of the project was the landscaping. Although some of the things I included may look a bit incomplete (amature at work) the two boys and I are enjoying the layout. They like to play with their cars and trucks on the layout as well. I still have to get on the ball and get the photo's taken. I have really appreciated this forum and have used many of the ideas and hints given without which I still bewall1 Thenks to everyone on the fourm for their help.
