    I say go for the expansion.

    Reason #1 Moar Layout!

    Reason #2 just keep expanding and you'll end up with an giant oval mainline! I'm seeing a big staging yard for east west trains to park in on the other side of the room. :p

    Glad to see you back Paul.

    That's a great plan for the expansion you have there; can't wait to see it come to life. (y)

    Paul- glad to see you back here. I like the addition of Katy Geeps to your motive power roster as well. Can't wait to see how the extension turns out.

    Have you settled upon a design for crossing that doorway?

    Great layout there Colonel! A bit late at joining in this thread but better late than never :). Looking forward to see the expansion and the gate. (I replied to your question about lift-gates in your other thread, feel free to ask if you need more info).

    Progress on the lift bridge but need to work out do I mount the bridge hard up against the bench work or stay level with the hinge

    Bench work well under way next stage is too fit the lift bridge. Question is whether to place the back drop at the start of the shelving otherwise it may be too deep

    Great idea and good work. I have done a few lift outs before but never one like this. Nice track also.
