Steve, You can have a super layout in that space. Just cool it until the TrainClown gets back to you. :thumb: Take it easy and don't let your wife become a "railroad widow". Let her know that this is just a hobby and she's not. I've been messing around with my layout for over 2 years now...I may never finish. We all get frustrated sometimes but that's usually because we let our priorities get out of line. The MRR will come eventually.
