Well hello all. Over the last year, I've slowly but surely gathered info and ideas on a layout that I want. While I was doing this, I built my tables, put out all my foam, and then drew out, and tested for clearance, all aspects of my track plane to scale on the foam. Now I'm at a point to where I could go many ways... But I'm nothing but stumped. I'm a little daunted by the sheer size of the layout, as it's my first layout. I'm thinking of doing it somewhat like modules. Doing small sections 3-4 feet at a time. The 2 things I'm worried about the most are soldering and wiring for DCC... I've read article after article about both, and they both seem not so difficult, but it's still daunting. Could anyone offer good advice to get over this hump and get on with the layout? Maybe some inspirational speech? Or maybe a great website I haven't looked at before?
