**********************
Your can find photos on my blog

***********************



I wanted something to just run some of my N Scale stuff on.

So I had this 30x32 piece of 2" foam.

This is the plan I came up with, it's a folded figure 8.

Pictures to follow.  Open to name suggestions

Sorry, I did not think I was giving you all the credit.

So thanks to all for the suggestions.

Since I am not able to rename post can a moderator rename this post from unnamed to Preztel...

Lynn,

The orginal design was to use a crossing and elevate the complete inside loop 1".

Now that I have started laying it out I have changed it to over and under design.

 I'll get some pic up the weekend of what I have so far.
