Thanks for the support MC. I'll always stick with N. I looked into the different modular groups a lot the past few weeks and if I had to choose, FreeMo N would definitely be the pick. I've built two test modules that almost mimic FreeMo, except I only have 1' wide end plates. And like you said, these can easily be used with FreeMo with a small transition module. I'm going to the train store soon for some cork roadbed. Maybe I'll get the new progress thread/blog started today so I can share some photos. Oo, and I may have to take you up on the NMRA meeting, assuming I'm still in the Bay Area by then.
