I don't know your family but I feel confident predicting that you won't get the concept off the floor, er, ground.

Now that is something entirely different.  I hope you're not a pet person.  Smiley

That is neat and truly unique.  Thanks for sharing.

i do have a catzilla  but she doesnt like the trains and avoids it if she gets in the home.  i live on a small farm  which has 2 homes on it . ill be moving to the bigger home in the future  which has a huge basement  then i redo this layout even bigger than what i have ..  right now is working on things to make a great looking one  so i can transfer things allready done.   in the meantime i do love running long trains 20 to 50 cars long with 4 running at the same time and still work in a yard moving cars.   my narrowest curve is 26  which is on my ez track section .
i also use ez track to help with my flex track curves  35.25 is most of  curves or even larger .  i run 100 car train no promblem  it circles the whole layout gets over my bridge with three locos  with the highest slope is 2 degrees  most is 1 1/2  just  4 ft of it gets to 2 degrees.  my down slope is 4 degree .   have no promblem backing  long trains  up my slopes.    i have 3 grandchildren  oldest is 4 now i do things on it to make them happy and get interested in the hobby.      all my pieces of plywood are  1/4 "  6 ft long  2 sections of flextrack .  i can pull apart  to move or store. and i even have it quartered so i can expand 4 directions .        plans are is when i go into the other home  i build my platform and set this on it  then take section by section out and replace with what a hobby system looks like.        or do you sit with a 4x8 and i had that  when i started  i out grew it quickly.       

yes its different  and boy does it work  harder to run wires because you cant just stick them through a deck to wire underneath hard to set up the 4-8-8-4  a little . can i get to every location  yes .    the dirt/dust is no different than on a table  i clean every month with a wet dry vac  layout and walking areas.   and my big promblem which i fixed racoons coming down the chimney  and knocking over stuff. 

im not just into trains i have a couple old tractors,  have horses ,rental homes and make time to relax is my railroad and alot of that time is running them.   i have some really nice steam  that i only bring out once in a while and seeing what others do to theirs makes me think of the day i can retire and give that a shot also.  ive been doing this for three years now and hopefully another 30 so i can show off some cool stuff in my head that needs to come out

Thanx Dave

Wow, a lot great looking layouts.  Here are a few of mine.  I still have a long ways to go!  Here is a link to a few more construction shots and a few prototype shots.    http://toddryburnphotography.com/p463579188

That is some truly sturdy benchwork, I might add.

Nice work!  Wiring nice and neat.  Was that an air compressor I saw?  What is that used for Brian?
