Good Luck GrandpaCoyote with the layout. gotta love that old truck in the pic. OLDGETTYSK

Thank you sir for the well wishes; I'm really looking forward to getting elbows deep in this plan.
Ain't it a great pic, can't wait to see it in person next year on vacation. :)

Hi GC. I like that plan of yours. You made a good choice in making the isles as wide as you did. One thought I just had on the elevation thing is to lower the terrain rather than raise the track. Does that make any sense? That bridge on the Dead river is really going to look good.
I just took out the peninsula on my layout. I had left 24 inch isles and felt that was alittle crowded. I'm also going to raise the layout up about 6 inches. I have a duck under and it's getting me in the back.
So how have you been?
