Looks good to me, although you'll have running issues with such warped rail! :D ;)
Ted's Excellent Adventure - lots of imagery of my 'workbench', locos and what I'm modelling.

Browsing flickr, my rollercoaster isn't far off 1980s prototype in some cases...   :worried:

As it happens, you're not the only one. I suspect attacking some old bits of IKEA shelving to make something to support the layout will be easier than fixing my battered pins! Managed to tear my left calf running across the road after the school drop-off last week - wish I'd done it doing something exciting  :-[. No running or cycling for at least 6 to 8 weeks  :doh:

I'm thinking of splitting the levels to add some interest and help with the view blocking of the rear running line. The idea was to raise the main depot area by 5mm or so. I know cork is the traditional material, but I was wondering if there is anything else that people have used, perhaps some sort of foam that will be easy to glue (below to baseboard / above for track and scenic)? This would allow me cut in to seat buildings and install point controls etc. Any thoughts?
