    I have been working on a small layout with a couple of friends these past few weeks. The competition rules said it not only had to work, but everything also had to fit in a shoebox.

    Here's what we came up with

    Peco N gauge points and Peco 009 flexi track. This is what it looked like 3 weeks ago.

    Hey, Jon, your layout has a definite Swiss touch to it!

    This is looking great! Also the name 'Kleine Shuhornbahn' (Little Shoehorn Railway) is well chosen. You shoehorned the RR into that box, and many of the mountain peaks in the German speaking area of Switzerland, Austria and Germany are called 'So-and-so-HORN'. A funny inside-joke, indeed! :D :D :D
