Here's a photo of the smelter area...with a 4 foot aisle between it and the hairpin curve peninsua. This is 8 feet by 4 feet and will be the "end of the line"...just like the real SCPA&M.




Please excuse the mess, I am probably the only modeler to create a mess while building a layout (yeah, right!). The antique bookcases contain about half of my "research material" which is probably about 97% narrow gauge. Again, I need to straighten up the books, etc. but will do that in a while.  The doorway to the right is my bedroom...a mess most of the time, on the left is a nice finished bedroom which gets occupied by an overnight "guest" who says that I snore (she hasn't heard herself!). A lift out section will go across my doorway and more layout will run behind where I am standing with the camera.

The drawing that Duane supplied of the smelter (previous post) shows the track plan, the standard gauge will be minimized but there will be a section of dual gauge, could it be one of the only 24"/56 1/2" pieces of dual gauge in the US? You Main 2 foot nuts can let me know. So far, so good...I hope!
