Pantenary, if people visit your brand new house and all they notice is the tiny dent on the back end of your washing machine in a small dim lighted laundry room, well then they have a problem. Same here, all I took notice in was the fine craftsmanship in the catenary itself. It is magnificent! I wouldn't even know where to begin! I saw the supports and looked right past them! That's wasn't what I was supposed to be looking at anyway, your system and craftsmanship is really outstanding!

Greetings CR Fan:

Thank you for your kind comments.  The same goes for you; I have no idea how I missed your post.  Sorry about that.

As I mentioned, I did like how the wiring came out.  However, those supports are hideous.  I should have blown the whole thing away before the wire went up and at least did O42 curves.  I learned a lot from that build.   The current layout is O63, which is still a little tight for my liking.  However, it is the best compromise with the available space, such tat the loops are not all curves.  The next layout will employ at least O81 ruling curves, (maybe some O72 in the yard trackage).  Anything bigger seems a little excessive unless one has a lot of room; a luxury I currently do not enjoy.  Even so, I am completely content with what I have, (maybe adding some more GGD Amfleets at some point).
