    If I could have been there, I would have been snapping pictures by the dozens. It would have required a few hours to take in all of that track and action.

    It would take a couple hours to traverse the whole thing.

    That hurts my brain just looking at it.
    What must it have been like putting it together, much less running it?

    With several leveling crews it only took 9 hours to assemble it

    Looks like a lot of routes "you can't get there from here". Sure would be fun though.

    Yes you had to get creative to get to. A couple of the branches. Either take the long way around or Wye the train

    That started out on Marks loop. Where it stopped at the Wye, I got stopped for about 30 minutes due to a 15 train gridlock on that side.

    Late in the day, but I’ve just caught this post and enjoyed the vids. Some great modelling and despatching going on there - thanks for sharing it all!
