    Hey Guys, I'm in the midst of building a layout here in Kelowna, B.C. What I would like to do is see if any of you guys are in or around the area so I can get some ideas from you. I have completed the benck work and and now starting to install risers etc. Planning on going DCC and need to SEE how it works.

    Hope there is someone out there who can help!!

    Layout: 22x14

    Hey Glen, I was out there a few years ago when you had all the forest fires, but I haven't been there. We rented a house at the end of a street on the beach. It was really nice, it had a pool, seadoo's and it was about 1 minute from the beach!
    I was thinking you could make your yard longer and double ended if you changed the plan to be a point to point with a reverse loop on either end. It would look almost the same as it does now, but you could make your sections of the layout a bit thiner, maybe 2 feet wide, and still have that penusilla in the middle. Just a thought, make sure you draw lots of track plans, before you start laying the track!

    Sorry Mike, Youv'e got the wrong forum member I think you were refering to Tinbasher. I've already got the trackwork built.
    Anyway I unfortuntly was around in Kelowna for the fires but spent almost all the time in the hospital with a herniated disc in my back. If you ever get back to here give me a call.
