After about a year of not being able to run trains following a "minor" rolleyes: redesign & rebuild of my layout > ie I removed the top level of my double deck layout!! I have just managed to complete the last of my mainline and actually run a few trains over the weekend First couple of photos show my scene that will represent the area around Tunnel 26-27. I have a few scenic & prototype features I want to include so rather than an exact replica of one tunnel portal the scene will be inspired by the area above South Boulder Creek where the track hugs the rock face I have about a 175mm (8") vertical drop from track height to creek level + scenery towering above the track This scene is about 2.8m long (about 10ft) Opposite side of my layout room you can see photos of my Utah desert scene > am planning to create mesas that will dominate the trains. This scene is 12ft long Couple of other photos show my removable duck under which is at 55" off the floor. More like a nod under for me cos I'm not tall The track swings around into my Moffat Tunnel east portal after crossing the duck under You might notice that I have built my layout in sections (not modules, they'll only go together one way). This is so I can take my layout to train shows - I'm actually booked to do one this coming July. I can also remove these sections and build entirely new scenes that I already have planned. One way of looking at it, is I have unlimited layout space?? wink: My layout corners (apart from one turn helix & my duck under) are fixed and only serve to turn a train 90'. These won't be scenicked Anyways, it's good to be able to run trains again......that's what this is all about isn't it.
