    the layout is based on edaville railroad in south carver mass which is or was a cranberry plantition and tourist railroad using the old maine 2 footers

    ok here is the work from the first 2 weeks

    the benchframe was built using 1x4 pine and 2x3 legs.
    it is being built in a modular form the straight modules are 30"x 48" the corners are 48"x48"

    the layout top is 1/2" sanded ply glued and screwed to the 1x4
    and my 2 1/2 year old she is always in the wrong spot at the wrong time 8 out of 10 of my pics has her in them

    i am hand laying my track and wanted a nice hard surface to lay the track on i decided to add a upper layer of plywood supported by 2x2" so i could put water and the cranberry bogs in.
