For years I've been fascinated by this story. Right now I'm on a cruise ship that a few days ago transited the canal.

I have few ideas on how to do it, but do you know if anyone has done a layout of the canal?

There are so many innovative aspects. I'm thinking particularly the building of it. Over 100 steam locomotive active constantly. Automatic dumping cars. A machine that moved track constantly. The pre-existing transcontinental railway that played an integral part in its construction.

Just thinking....

Trains Magazine did a really good article on the railroad a year or so ago, but I don't recall ever seeing it modeled in a scale smaller than 1:1.
