It's great to have the shows coming back.  As well as being a vendor, I will bring in my Marx Portable/Storable Electric Train layout to run.  I hope to see some of you there!

Great video.  I've always liked the Marx Coal Dump Station.

That is a neat layout. 

What are you using to align the sections of the layout?  It looks like you cut the track at the panel split lines, regardless of where the ends of the sections of track were.

Yes, the tracks are cut at the hinge line.  If the tracks don't align perfectly due to slight variation in the base, I use thin cardboard under the ties to make the rail height even.  Also, I round the ends of the cut rails as much as possible to even out any variations in height.
