Spent all weekend working on the layout, am finally putting some track down. The past couple of months were spent building my mechanical turn-out controllers and uncoupling electromagnets. Cutting through the foam and plywood for these items is fairly easy. Everything is going well, the pre-built stuff makes it go quickly. Also, the fact that my bus wires are already installed under the shelves is a plus, makes it easy and quick to get the track wired up. Anyway, I'm pretty excited about the whole thing. I know, this thread is worthless without pictures. Will get some taken and posted later this week. WOOHOO! Now I'm making some REAL progress!
