As you look at  those track plans, realize that the sectional tracks will not line up right.

By new math, I suppose you mean calculations?  XD

Are you going to add any diagonal bracing for the legs? Or just hope any weight on the tabletop will be light enough not to matter?
(Hint: cross braces are your friends) Wink

Question: How are you going to run a couple DC trains with only 1 pair of outlets? Let alone any scenic lights and overheads.  Use a bunch of power strips?

I think what would've gotten the attention of the train crew was all that wheelslip!

That was genius, it really was.

I hope I'm not up-playing the obvious here, but are you possibly connecting the track and the switches both to the DC side of the controllers?

Quick question Ken.
Who's the woman on the train pilot, reply #10, picture 4?
Just a random train climber?

A lot of times, cheaper places would just paint the entire door, knob and all, to keep replacement cost down slightly.

Every time there's a bad storm, I'm surprised that lean-to shack of a roundhouse doesn't give up the ghost.

Well, even the relatively busy B&O railroad always used humans to turn their 60' TT under the 22-sided roundhouse in Baltimore.  Then again, it would've been mostly used to turn small engines and cars.

Gonna need some context here...

Looks good!  Keep up the good work.

Just remember that since you're going to light it, any ceiling underhangs will be visible through the fat gap along the eaves.

I have a fairly cheap and very effective way of reducing track noise.

Cardboard, like from boxes.

Just regular corrugated cardboard, cut to fit the full width of the roadbed.
