Wow, two Pennsy classics. That yard track looks like some pretty fancy footwork. The $60,000 question is do you think you will be attempting catenary?
There is no attempting I will be doing it eventually! I will stop right before the chimney as there wasn't and catenary past Harrisburg...

Who makes US outline catenary in HO? I've seen it before on layouts, but don't know if it's scratchbuilt or commercially available.

European layouts have a variety of sources, but not sure about North American outline.
I forget who makes it but I plan on making the poles with my 3d printer and somewhere I have the other parts saved or I'll scratch build the wires...

@Chops here are a few of his latest YT videos middle one I took at the yearly "Tour de Chooch" which is a yearly event the weekend after Thanskgiving where area model railroaders in the area have open houses and you can drive around and check out everyone elses layouts!

I attempted to today but without much success... I finally wired in the interior two tracks that loop behind the chimney on my layout and no power!!! Technically I ran my F3 AB and F7 ABA set ups about once around the outside tracks to make sure they still worked which they did which is even more frustrating!!!

@SF Gal every time you post nighttime videos or pictures it makes me want to skip all the scenery stuff and go right to nighttime lighting!
I totally thought I lost my mind!!! I thought I was posting this in @SF Gal 's build thread but when I looked at the thread it wasn't there! Glad to see I'm not totally senile and it did get posted somewhere!!!
