17 Nov 06 - Because I had to climb up on the layout, I decided to take the plunge and cut out the opening for the TT before laying any cork or trackwork. Started laying the cork for the mainline. I will finish the mainline before working the yard or any stubs/sidings. Sandy, says keep the cutout for the TT. It is 1/2 ply with 1/2 foam glued. Will make a perfect "lazy susan" for those painting projects coming up!
