West They're good enough for me.

gunrunnerjohn;

West Sectional benchwork

LVDave714;

I'm not familiar with the Mianne benchwork, but if it consists of sections or "modules" that can be unbolted from each other and moved, then I think it's a good idea. I am a big fan of...

West Congratulations!

DavidJones;

Congratulations on running trains! You, and your wonderfully smart wife, are both quite correct. Kato Unitrack turnouts are much better than Bachmann EZ-Track turnouts. In fact,...

West Hobby shops & scenery supplies

fall2fast;

That's a bummer about the hobby shop guy! He's committing commercial suicide and probably too dumb to know it. That's the kind of shop I won't shed a tear when he goes out of...

West Non-ferrous/non-magnetic model ballast

West Yes

Webnerdnick;

I think you may indeed be overthinking the benchwork for such a small layout. I should explain that I'm a big fan of L-girder construction to prevent warping, and I often promote...

Tony;

It sounds like you have several definite ideas on what you want on your railroad. The turnpike analogy doesn't line up all that well with a railroad. The closest I can think of to what you...
