    I was loooking over your latest mag article and am wondering if you would expound on the lift out section. What do you use it for? How big is it? It looks small and like you couldn't do much from it judging from the track plan on pg 37. Maybe it's not scale. How far off the floor is the layout? What would you do differently regarding the lift out if you were to redesign the layout?

    The reason for all the questions, if you remember the layout plans I posted some time back, there are to be two large areas (mountains) in the double reverse loop. They will cover almost 6' by 12' (real 1:1 feet). I think I'll have to help those little plastic people with some of the work, or it will never get done. So I think I'll have to pop up out of the mountain like a dancin' girl from a cake. Don't get too excited guys, I'm not shavin' my legs or wearin' a tutu. It's just too itchy when it grows back.

    Thanks Shamus and Marty. Clerk, I figured since I wasn't going to get into the tutu again, I could at least post a pic from last time!
