Hi Alex, I am sure the layout will be fantastic! Its kind of funny on the concrete floors, I work in a relatively new high-rise office in Seattle, the floor I work on is mainly polished concrete and the ceilings are open with exposed pipes and beams, that are mainly painted black. It actually looks pretty good. I think you will make yours work well as described. The concrete floor will be easy to clean.
I had the same issue with utilities in my train room. Before installing the ceiling, I took pictures of everything so I would know where everything is in the event of a problem. There are a few cleanouts in the ceiling (not over the layout thank goodness), but if I ever need to get to them, I can locate them and will make access panels in the unlikely event I would have to get into the ceiling. Just a thought.
Either way, it looks like it will be a great train room. Keep up the great work.
Beautiful room Alex. Looking forward to your layout and your designs as my room is approximately the same dimensions. I have 24 by 13 I just bought my house approximately a year ago I moved in and there's so much other work to do first but I'm just about there so good luck and looking for your updates...... let the fun begin.
Thank you all for the nice comments and input, i appreciate it very much.
I'll most likely install some kind of ceiling, and put some kind of floor in. Heating will be 220 electric baseboard. My next update will not be for while, my guess would be December sometime.
Again I thank you all ,
hi Alex can't wait to see the completed layout! I really enjoyed running my trains on your last layout especially your double slip switch worked perfectly on my big boy engine and the engine I bought from you!
You are truly a great artist and very talented builder! hope to se you at York if your going will be there next Friday my good friend!
