    Construction looks neat and orderly, and the structures look good. Your planning larger brick and concrete industries?

    Impressed and subscribed, I'll be following this build closely, along with several others. I've just started building the shelves for my own around the room shelf layout. Good job on the structures.

    "Tracking along with progress" - nice. Those structures look excellent, and that is some sturdy looking benchwork.

    Thanks Russ! I am planning some larger structures for sure. Obviously some of them will be determined by what space I have (which I'm still working out where everything will go) and how it all ends up laying out.

    Hey everyone, got some solid work done on the layout this month! Posted a new vid over on the channel. Would be honored if you gave it a view and left a comment or a suggestion.

    At about minute 4:50, I noticed a turnout rather close to the WS riser. To avoid trouble with that turnout, I would move the riser an additional 4-5 inches farther away from the turnout. I have been dismayed at the trouble caused by a change of grade too close to the turnout.

    I enjoyed your video!
    Cheers!

    Thanks Gordon! I appreciate the suggestion. I'll definitely take a good look at it before anything becomes permanent!

    Have only found your thread but have to say, what you have done is very impressive indeed, especially your structures which are amazing. Excellent work and look forward to watching the layouts progress.
