its a beautiful layout but I wouldn't have kept just a 4 foot tall space for it...I would have tried to figure out something different...but it is very nice looking!

I can't imagine building all that on my hands and knees and probably my back for the wiring. Fantastic. Thanks for posting that JJ. Just goes to show ya that people will build a railroad no matter where they are or how much space they have. Pete

I don't think he had a choice though. That was the space available to him under the kitchen, so he had to tough it out and build his railroad there. I love his setup for the controls though, pretty nifty!

Gents,

I merged two threads on the same subject into one thread, and moved it to the OO forum section.
