    You gave me food for thought, Scotian_Huntress. I can't see how (or a need) to run staging into both peninsulas. But orienting the ladders close to the edge of the benchwork, for maintenance or...

    I've seen plenty of lateral systems on row crops, like soybeans. More often on small fields, such as 15 to 40 acres. The downside is that the irrigation wheels parallel the crop rows, not cut across...

    Each of us builds to his or her own standards. Code 55 for some, code 80 for others, and so long as trains run and we enjoy them, nothing else matters.

    There are plenty of choices for code 55 North American track. But right now Peco is almost the only manufacturer making N scale concrete tie Euro track. Please don't mess with it!
