    And, in comparison to a layout that would take up that much floor space, probably not much difference in cost - especially if one were doing catenary!

    Hmm this reminds me of this cartoonist that I am following on Instagram. Her husband is into trains and she is into quilts. The cartoon is called By the yard comics. There is also a website. https://bytheyardcomics.com

    I'm pretty sure you can use the space over the headboard for a small staging yard. Might have to punch a few holes through walls to reach it, and you might as well add a few industrial sidings along the route. See? Lots of room in the house for the layout when the house becomes the layout. Might have to install an arduino controlled 'Loom Crossing' to prevent awkward Loom / Locomotive interactions.

    hmmm.... Any way to rig up a custom car and a train to act as the loom shuttle? Would give a whole new meaning to 'Switching Layout'. Maybe call it a 'Stitching Layout'?

    Judging by the number of replies to this thread, it would appear there are lots of camel noses in lots of tents out there? Perhaps a compromise is in order for the bytheyardcomics?

    Possibly she could stitch up a quilt of his dream layout. Only question would be, twin, queen, king or super king?

    Fun thread. Cheers. arnold
