    After seeing the lighter gray, I was going to suggest going with a darker gray, similar to SP's gray. Am I right in seeing that as a bit darker in post #25 versus what you showed in post #22?

    I mean, it's blue, but it's not N&W Pevler Blue.

    Ordinarily I would agree with those saying black, or at least a darker brown, because of how it concentrates one's gaze. But knowing the geographic theme of your layout, I gotta say I think the tan...

    I like the line of thinking that goes: Why build a model railroad? Because there is space that might end up being something other than a model railroad if I don't.

    Anyways, I think you need to...
