    Neat idea. While you might not have a big enough layout to post actual scale miles, you could use a milepost to show the location of hidden uncoupling ramps, ends of electrical blocks, etc.

    I also found that if you take some 1/8" or so balsa sticks you can print numbers on Word in REALLY small text and use tack glue to tack them on thats what I will use :thumb:

    That's what I use. Except I use 1/8x1/8x24 basswood stripps and print out numbers in scale drawin' boxs then just cut them out with a razor blade and glue them on with elmers glue.
