Howdy Phil...man, that is really coming along! I miss being outside but the older I get, the more "home-ified" I get. I have a double car garage (phooey at the cars) that houses my little shop and new layout (built with much of the old layout). If you ever get over here around Rockwall, we're only 8 miles up the road, drop by.

How are you planning to handle drainage for rain water? Or, do you plan on covering everything with plastic sheets?
I have a few depression areas on my layout, and even though I plan on covering it with plastic sheets I'm confident that Murphy's Law will come into play and it'll rain unexpectedly, so I need to drill a few holes for the rain to drain through.
Or, maybe a small lake or two might look nice.

The plan for this layout is to not have too much scenery or fragile buildings. It will mostly be a place to switch cars. Things that are on the layout will be able to withstand the weather. Also I don't anticipate too much trouble with the rain. The layout dries pretty quickly. I have had several rain storms on it lately. More of and issue is leaves as they are falling now. But I can blow them off. As the layout morphs it may need to be covered. But not right now. I am even thinking of some Styrofoam scenery covered with a thin shell of cement. Thanks for the interest.
Thanks for the invite. I may take you up on that some time. Also interested in your latest layout.
