I agree with Adriatic's comments on bumping. I am glad you did. That is a nice review of the layout. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth a million. I like your simple but effective lift up bridge. I will be doing something similar on my new layout. So it looks like you have a hidden track by the furnace. Does that go to some off layout staging or is just a loop to get back around the layout?
I hope you are able to stick around and share some details of your layout! Thank you!
Thanks Mark! the lift bridge is simple and practical. So the Main outside Loop Enters that room in the tunnel you see the big boy sitting in. makes a left along the back wall behind the heater and comes across the bridge on to outside section of the layout Passes the downtown area into yard takes a 1/2 turn onto the main layout to cross the creek. Prior to November 2016 the outside of the layout was a Staging yard. Dad and I kept saying it would be neat to make trains run around the outside so, with out redoing all sorts of stuff we cut out the old oil tank and cleaned up and added 4x6 of layout in there plus removed the wall to.
Also theres a 20FT siding that wraps around the heater room for a 16 car Modern line pulled by 4 engines. video coming soon
