    Picture of my layout update...

    I have been working on my layout ... little by little... and I wanted to send a picture of my progress. First let me say that I know the grades are steep. But it was necessary to accomplish the look I want to eventually have.

    Here is a link to a sort of birds eye view of my layout

    Interesting looking layout, Bob. Nice work. I like L-shaped plans.

    Bob, I'm a little confused, I'm looking at the left hand wall, traveling towards the back and if I take the right hand swith, start heading down hill, all the way over the right hand wall, curve to the left start going up hill to the back wall and then back across to the left hand wall, make a left curve and end up back at the first point of starting, (at the right hand switch). Won't you have a direct short between the rails or have you got power reversing blocks in there "OR" am I just blind and seeing things? The layout does look good and would love to see it completed.

    Good EYES rcline,

    Yes I do have 2 auto reversing loops in this layout. I will try and take a birds eye view of this layout if I can.

    Regards,
