Welcome aboard, looking forward to seeing what you come up with, saving my “uh-oh's” for later. 😉

We had a box of hose fittings and repair bits that went wherever it would fit whenever it was needed and would sometimes just be sitting by the worksite.
I’m a big fan of layouts that have double track with a stretch of single.
It makes operations more fun (and prototypical in some cases).
I also agree with you on the bridge span thing!

I just tried the WS track pen, it’s basically just a paint pen but more money.
