    Already building, but...

    Byron, you are totally right. This layout was designed for me 4 years ago, and since then I have started to find a fascination in shelf layouts. I feel as though the Yard and engine facilities are huge now. Even though in real life these were huge. The brick yard at the curve I dont think is...

    How do you guys lay track???

    Heres the thing... The white caulk tends to pop through the tie plates so you have to carefully cut it off. Which is fine by me. Also, big globs can get stuck in the ties and it makes it hard to ballast.

    How do you guys lay track???

    I have been using white caulk on half of my layout, which I now regret... I see that a lot of people like to use elmers glue. I know you could nail it, but on foam it does not stay. Tell me what you guys use.

    Locos...do you really get what you pay for?

    I have engines ranging from 45 dollars all the way up to about 650 dollars. Of course I was able to get pretty amazing discounts, but thats another story. The cheapest ones are bachmanns, and they do not run well. I normally take out the Bachmann decoders and put it something different (TCS...
