I'm realizing also that the wood chips already have weed block underneath. Which means all I have to do is scoop off the wood chips where the track will lay, put down the track, and pour on the gravel.

Easy !!!

This will cut the track laying time down to a fraction of what it would otherwise have been.

I'm all about time savers !!!

I know what you mean!  Next local train meet I'm going to try and unload some stuff to make room.  Things got a little out of hand, if you know what I mean.  Whistling
