Its just an inexpensive Atheran that I bought about 14 years ago. Not a lot of detail - for example, the ditch lights are just painted on. It only has a basic Digitrax decoder but runs very quietly and smoothly. It really needs to be weathered!Nice! Is that a Kato -9?
Here is the latest track plan - I just realized I had not posted it
And here is a snapshot of the tools I use to draw lines on the base. This is not a complicated layout but it is important to get the main tracks laid as accurately possible so it will all fit. The laser square is absolutely invaluable for this process.Once I get it aligned, I can draw the lines with a Sharpie. I will not be using any trackbed for this layout as industrial trackage tends to be mostly at ground level.

Its nothing very complicated - its made by Stanley and I got it about 15 years ago. It has come in very useful in all kind of projects around the house over the years. When you push the green button, you get two laser beams at right angles which can help you align things - its that simple!Friend, please tell me more about "laser square" WHat brand/model are you using and how does it work? Thanks in advance! ---- Steve J
