OK, just asking.The Temporary Platform under the Chute that you refer to is MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard. It has very smooth surfaces that allow the Sector Plate to slide across. That piece of MDF is only 3 foot X 3 foot. Not enough to build a staging yard on. The Sector Plate is almost 4 feet long. I expect to be able to get 4 less than 4 foot long trains or two around 8 foot long trains in Staging on the tracks leading away from the Sector Plate in post 133. Maybe I'm using a Sector Plate because I like to experiment!
How will you achieve precise track alignment?The following two photos show the workings of my Sector Plate. I'm hopefull that these photo should explain what a Sector Plate is and how they work.View attachment 126940

My wife and I beat Covid 19 back in November. We had very mild cases.Ash Pit
Hope you can beat C-19.
I had a small HO layout that got dismantled to make way for a Home Office, forced on me by C-19.
Prior to that I had collected a few ON30 engines & wagons, mainly focused on a possible logging layout.
However, I had always wanted an HO Rivarossi Big Boy & I picked one up off Ebay last year.
So I am back & forth on whether to build again for HO, or ON30?
Has anyone created a layout that allows for both scales, maybe HO at one end & ON30 at the other, or one at the front, the other at the back?
