There ya go!

Cool!  That's kind of what I do, have multiple loops running so the eye can't concentrate, it makes the layout look bigger.  Wink

Yes the single motor MPC era powered unit runs quite well with a 12 unit train!

I need to start building things again.  By the time I moved last September, I had destroyed nearly everything (and A LOT more) you'll see in the pictures linked below.  All I brought with me was the incomplete LEM Aquarius and two Estes boosters; a Saturn 5 and Gus Grissom's Mercury Redstone.

It looks like the rocket from "Destination Moon" on the way for delivery!

The aim was to build a 50s Sci Fi type rocket!
