    Don't tell a Corsican (or maybe even your wife, whom I remember she was born over there) that living in Corsica you're living in France. Bullets may fly low in this wonderful location. ;)

    You are absolutely correct NEVER! NEVER! Call a Corsican, French or Italian! Speaking of here on New Years you will always hear all sorts of bullets fly ringing in the New Year! FREE OUR PIGS!!!!

    I'd rethink the 2 by 12. They would be really heavy. Also I wouldn't be screwing into the side of the plywood regardless of the thickness of it. Maybe I misunderstood that.

    Don't take this the wrong way but maybe break up a long post like that into some paragraphs. Is much easier to read that way;).

    Yep 2x12 wood would be too thick:barefoot:. Maybe I should said 1/2" or 3/4" x 12' panelling. Yes I would rather have it glued and screwed/nailed to the outside of the plywood. Yes I will glue and screw blocks in the corners and along the edges too.not only for support for the corners but also for the folding legs. This outside barrier plus the plexiglass should keep the foam and scenery safe from an future CATastrophe! You are correct, I should have paragraphed the post(n)

    The Fascia I would like it to be even with the top of the foam board and thick enough to support some plexiglas and strong enough to apply an handle for moving purposes and holding controllers and beverages.

    In the drawing the fascia does go to the top of the foam. Substitute a heavier plywood of your choosing for the 1/8" Masonite,

    Plywood would be suffice for this indeed!

    One thing to also consider is raising the fascia above the layout surface about 1/8" above the nearest railhead. With Kato N Scale, that's about 3/8" (1/4" + 1/8") above the layout surface. I've done this on all of my layouts and it's saved me from ever losing a derailing locomotive or car over the side. 1/8" is low and won't interfere with photography either. Just a thought.

    That sounds like a plan to have the little wall about 5/8" high. Thing is will it prevent an CATastrophe?
