Clif-them thar sticks have since been replaced with high tech camera tripods. As I can afford them, I buy a couple of them at a time, I believe that now I have 14 and plan for maybe 4 or 5 more to get rid of the sticks.  And yes, it does do the job..I can run trains in the nice fresh air and if I need to, the entire layout can be taken apart and hauled around and then set up again. Why be on a layout tour when you can bring the layout to the show!

On the "technical" side, many modular layout builders have "3 point" supports to hold up the sections. I think that I can use the adjustable tripods in the same way. Will it last? Who knows, but I have watched the layout as 60 MPH winds and sideways rain pound down and it never moves! Of course, if a tornado hits then it's all over..but if that happens, I have more to worry about than a silly train layout!
