Yes, I COULD hand lay all the track to the precise 56 1/2".
As I mentioned in my previous statement, they even have a name for it.
There are companies that offer the bullhead rail and proper chairs for it
( no spiking - they are screwed on to the sleepers [ties] ).
One of the issues I might have is doing that proper double-slip switch
(and I need two of them).
That could be a set back.
Of course, I could just drag you over here to lay the thing.
Naturally, the other issue I would have is,
none of my equipment would run on it.
It would be a deserted railway in effect.
I believe I'll stick with my original idea.
But thanks for the input.
