    Is there a chance of you running a movable track section across the door to the room, such that when the door is closed you can have around-the-walls continuous looping? Does the door swing into the...

    Cool find!

    You know how N-scale prices have been going up in recent years? Well it follows that the further back in time you go, the cheaper N scale was. Back in 1948, I bet N-scale was so cheap,...

    Happy Belayted Burthday!

    Actually, giving yourself some focus like that might be a great way to go. You have room in your industrial area to model a big destination for coal, whether that be a large power company, or a steel...

    I have a suspicion that the 3rd switch for the main line polarity is somehow not connected to another set of feeders elsewhere on the layout, where maybe there is a crossover or other non-obvious...

    I know we're all supposed to be paying attention to the rock faces, but the civil engineer part of me wants to make sure that everyone notices the appropriateness of these bridges!

    I like the idea of splitting the two mains between the red dots, and making them look like competing routes through a common river valley. You might get an elevation difference in there, too, so you...

    What an amazing little bridge!

    Nowadays, that is the kind of thing that makes for a great 3D printing candidate. It's great to see old-fashioned scratch build problem solving in action. I dare say...

    I would encourage you to consider doing some portions of the layout as "T-Trak friendly" in that they mate up with T-Trak modules, but aren't strictly in themselves fully compliant. As an example, do...

    Great videos! I've been watching them as soon as they are posted, as I get them in my YouTube recommendations.

    The only thing I'm not fully sold on is the inclusion of paper trash on the track. I...

    It's so close to being able to fit a helix on the right end, and thereby let trains move between levels, but more importantly, share a capacious staging yard. In other words, instead of the...

    In a sense, our model worlds are a statement of how we see the world. That may mean it shows the world as we would like it to be (I am thinking of baronjutter in this regard, his urban planning seems...

    Back to the hobby shop for more Woodland Scenics products, right?
    That stuff can handle a freeze, I'm pretty sure.
    Also no mowing or trimming once installed! Very low-maintenance.

    I spy some Le Corbusier hiding in the cabinet! I am guessing it won't be making an appearance on this layout, though, as I bet it's closer to HO scale (1:96 perhaps?)

    Shame, though. You know how...

    You might not be, but you might know someone else who is. Consider as an option that you might hire some local art student to do this work for you. You'll get something that fits your layout better,...

    I think you are on the right track in terms of thinking of this as 24" of usable shelf to each side of a 48" wide aisle, I just looked at it in section and I think this is what you can achieve based...

    Since this is a 3D printed part, I think it might be worth asking: would it be feasible to use a friction fit instead of glue, by having the bottom side include bumps that fit in between the ties of...

    Yup, you got it!

    EDIT: Except... maybe fit the blue track in between the two mains, so they each have access to it. This means spreading the mains apart a bit.
