I am in the track planning stage, I have 3/4 of a 8' by 15' room available.
I am leaning towards a simple U-shape. Not my theme,
but I like some of the aspects of the U-shaped track plans posted by Thundermesa Studio.
Mainly because the plans look like they would fit my room.
The plans call for 2-3 foot wide sections, at the most.
However, some plans show tunnels on the perimeter,
some of them lengthy.
I plan on L-girder construction,
with tracks on risers and plywood strips, and an average height of 4 feet or more.
If I plan accordingly, the long tunnel could be at the lowest track elevation.
In my imagination, I could crawl under there to re-cover a derailing.
I hasten to add that I have an active imagination.
So, does anyone successfully access a tunnel from under the layout ?
Or does everyone use lift-offs ?
