What a generous offer. In a couple of weeks, the local club will be offering a University day of classes which I'm very much looking forward to, otherwise I'd drive the 9 hours.

I'm curious where you get raw materials to build some of your track support structures. I'm particularly interested in wooden slats of different sizes. Do you use an Xacto knife to cut wooden pieces or is there something better I can use? Should I just head over to Hobby Furnituremartlobby with a keen eye?

Sorry for the noob questions. The scenery is probably the part I am most in the dark about.

Ask away, and I have a small band saw which I use so that it does not distort the edges... I also go to the local hobby shop and pick up either balsa wood or bass wood depending on how heavy I want my structure..
