    *I never did a layout where the two sides of the table would have separate divided scenes. This is a first for me though it is a common feature in a lot of layouts. The main table section is 4' 6" X 8'. There will be a 2 track mainline. There will only be one tunnel through the hill and that being on the far end seen in the photo in this post. The near end seen in the photo I posted above, will have the two track main line curving and running around and under a slight overhanging cliff. I can see it in my mind and I hope I can make it look good.

    Here it is today with two main lines and track cuts on far end for tunnel and on near end for overhanging rock formation.

    Those are great layout photos. You certainly got mountain building down. Now if I only can do half as good.
