    Well I've made some miner progress on the layout . Can't work on it as much as I would like and can't get to the hobbie store often enough either. It is comming along though and looking better. Need to get some specific houses and buildings to fill in those undone spaces, and have lots and lots of trees to make. Always open to ideas and suggestions.

    I'll echo what these guys said.Just take your time and do it as you can.You will find that you are much happier with the layout that way.

    I also agree with them that it looks real nice so far.

    Yep, I agree, nice layout. I also notice that is is built on a four-poster drafting table. Great idea, I've got an oak one of those sitting in the storage shed, and was kinda sorry I didn't do the same thing.

    You can't tell in these pictures but the transformers and such are in the drawer on the right.

    Slow progress is better than no progress...

    Dumb question department: What is the overall trackplan? It looks like a folded dogbone with a lot of hidden track, but I can't be sure.

    Yes it is a distorted figure 8 and a separate out side loop. yes a bit is under the landscape to kinda disguise that fact. The "I'm not sure " kinda tells me my disguise is working.
