Your work looks beautiful!  Glad to see your daughter having fun too

Can you tell me what is the purpose of the notches on the edges of this board?

I would recommend 7 inches or 17.78cm from the lower track railhead to the bottom of the overpass wood.

You can have less if it is not available. Measure the height of the tallest engine or car that you have. That will be the limit. 

Double stacked container cars and auto rack (carrier) cars tend to be the tallest.

I am sorry that I didn't comment on the trestles - I had a loss in the family and the holidays were a bit tough. The result looks really great!

Carl, Thank you !

My most sincere condolences. 

So, This underpass only for cars. I will make a long highway for connection the city to industry park !

Thank you ! She loves to be with me !

I had seen this in other layout here in OGR but I discarded this ideia. So you can see new updates! I change all !! 

I went back to look.  What are the overall dimensions?  I really like what you are doing!

Nice suggestion Carl.  I never heard of it, but it reminds me of an old single arch bridge, but it has more modern lines to it.

Leandro, How much room do you have for an abutment between the switch on the top of the plan and the road below?  It looks like a small distance, but I don't know the scale of the drawing.

New updates ! I would like have a Oil Refinery, but I knew that have small space so I think if it's possible a Small Oil Refinery and I need help us to know what buy for small oil refinery !

My first plan was MTH Operating Storage Tank + Oil Operating Storage Tank (Project RRtrack Picture) but I think very low details !

So I need help or ideia !

Leandro,

I am sorry not to respond sooner - most are custom built to fit the layout - Plastruct makes the parts - you can decide on the level of detail - they look good with a minimum of valves, piping, tanks and such - 

I think OGR forum member Alan Graziano has built a few for some customers - try a search on the forum

A tank farm and a distribution platform may provide the look that you want without the expense of a refinery

I will look for some ideas for you -

The layout, shelves, and control area look great!  I see your young helpers like to paint!!  Is that your dad standing in the photographs with you.

Looks like you are making great progress and the photos are welcome!

SUGGESTION:  When you add new photos, edit the thread's title to add:  Updated April 6 or equivalent date.  Doing so alerts folks like me that you have added new material.

You can edit the thread's title by going back to your original post that started the thread and using the gear icon.

Thanks; I'll keep my eye out for your next announced update!

Perfect ! Thanks ! It's done !

Hi Folks !

New updates since last post !

So I finished the distribution power force, so now I will start control painel switch.

To control painel switch I'm searching a digital circuit to the dwarf and the leds(Green/Red) it should stay in painel!

So someone would have any project? ( I thought to uso CI 555 in mode bi-stable)
Thanks.

Leandro, Very solid construction underneath and nice wire distribution!  You must have spent too much time in one spot for your hound dog to decide you were a good place for a nap!  Great photograph of you and your son!

Hi, Leandro!

I see that you have the Atlas switch and motors - perhaps this topic will help if you are using the Atlas controllers

https://ogrforum.ogaugerr.com/...ch-to-atlas-o-switch

Stan2004 and Gunrunnerjohn will be able to help with the circuit to power the leds.

I do not believe the 555 is the solution. 

Leandro, I apologize. I see 2 - SC-2 on the power panel.

Will you use those to control the switches?

I am thinking that you are - therefore - you only need the switch position indicator lights - yes?

Hi, Carl !

No problem ! Yes, I have 2 SC-2 that I will use to control the switches !

Yes, I want to have lights in the switches and manual control painel switches !

Do you have some ideia?

* In picture small circular to Leds and bigger circular to manual switches

Thanks !

A great milestone! Congratulations! I love how the room is organized.  

One knows that the layout is big enough when you have to edit a complete run video of the layout.
