I have been quietly watching this layout progress. I like the new bump out section...adds some good depth to the scene, which can be difficult in such a large scale. Overall, it is shaping up as a very enjoyable "little" railway to run on. I could easily picture the trains slowly doing laps of the room while working on projects at the bench. Nice work.
Also nice to see the Baldwin 2-4-2 out on duty. Would be really nice if Bachmann thought to do this in On30, and even better if they wanted to make it a 2-6-2 to assist us "Puffing Billy" nuts!

glad your keeping an eye on me,
the depth is great for looking thru the scenes,
thats why I go with the triangle bumpouts,
you can reach everything on the angles,
as you have followed I complete the scenery on the main benchwork first so I don't have to reach across to it after the bumpouts go on,
I usually always keep the track laying in my scenes very close to the edge of the main bench work for the ease of track laying,
then use bumpouts to create depth and fullness of scenes.
That Baldwin 2-4-2T is my favorite looking locomotive today,
at least till the next loco I might get!
