    Construction of the new Indiana Midland is finally underway.
    Getting the room ready was a time consuming task, with putting up drywall and installation of the H/A unit. The first pic shows about 2/3's of the bench work up. It is a combination of open gird and a modified L-girder. The L-girder is really a T-girder. The T wiil supply more attachment points for the cross members. The second pic shows more detail of the T-girder at the end of one of the peninsulas. The next task is to dismantle the existing layout. I hope to savage all the bench work, track, and lights to finish the new layout.

    Yes, it is, but it is one of the most important steps you can take for future satisfaction. Keep up the good work!

    Hey Marty, On your old layout on your website could you tell me how wide the yard benchwork is? excluding the dogbone curve.:D

    The benchwork is 33" wide and 48" tall. I need a stepstoop to reach the buildings and track that is near the backdrop.
