You're welcome!

I finally remembered how to post a track diagram so here it is. Hopefully this is what your understanding of my spiel is:

Dave

I'm just a dude with a bad back having a lot of fun with model trains, and finally building a layout!

Yup, thats exactly what I did. I also saved a ton of money by learning how to remove solder and the joiners from turnouts so i could reuse them. A Vice, 40W needle tip, and pliers works well.

A little old of a post, but found this while Googling for layouts. Curious if you've gotten any more work done on this. Looks like a nice layout.

I would also like to know.  I wonder what happened to the OP.  He hasn't posted to the Forum since his last post to this thread.

I tried to sell my two cents worth, but no one would give me a plug nickel for it.

I don't have a leg to stand on.

Ok here our some pictures

I created these quickly built Top layer moduels that I can use to raise elevation ontop of track area.

 

Shows how the modules Fit and are used.

 

Then I used pink foam underneath them for support at an angle and covered with plaster cloth.

 

 

Then I countined that all the way around.

 

 

Video of it working.

Glad you are still around.  Thanks for posting the photos. I gather you enjoy working on the club layout. Thats great, but hope you can get back to work on the personal  layout soon. Any photos of what you have been doing at the club?

Well it's been quite a while, decided to tear the layout down, and redo it. I learned that 5ft deep is to hard to build on. so im going to do something easier.
