    Hello prodigy: Looks like you have made significant progress since your last post. I don't know how much more length you can squeeze in there carwise. Overhang on the ends will be a factor when you run cars connected together. Other than that, appearance will be a factor with cars much longer than what you show. Keep up the good work.

    The car on the middle track is 56' you say? That's what my 60 footers look like on 18" radius. I don't run any longer than that.
