Greetings to all! I am new to The Gauge and wanted to share my empire in progress. Basement is roughly 25' x 25' after installing a wall to keep the furnace and laundry area out of the main room which is still under some re-construction. Pics show about half of the completed frame work. Layout will be a point to point. More pics to follow as more work is completed. PICTURE SHOWS THE NEW WALL AND THE POINT WHERE THE TRAINS WILL GO INTO A HELIX BEHIND THE WALL. Helix will be the size of a 4' x 8' sheet of plywood. All wall mounted. Looking east from the previous picture. Extension from wall is the exception, mounted from floor joists. Empire to continue down the long wall behind the shelving unit.
