Thanks a lot, Jon. Freezing rain on the way to work at church at 0630 this morn in the grey and cold Crystal Lake. Had to stop and scrap the window a few times. Ugh. John and Chief, nice job! You are both v. kind. Wife and daughter are at a jewelry party - uh oh. I'm going back into the basement to open another Thomas box - the youngest and I do one a day - we got all of Lionel's Thomas items. Frank53, in some of your photos, you have a curve right at the edge of the layout - are you worried about running something so close to the edge?
