Lookin' good Dwayne!
The backdrop in place adds a good deal of realism to your trackplan, hiding the loop. I'm looking forward to seeing the scenes progress.

Also, good idea putting the uncoupling magnets under the grade crossing. I tend to forget where they are and think that'd help me remember...

Dwyane,

Are you just using regular magnets for uncouplers? How well do they work? Is there any special way to set them down?

Bob,

I am using these from Radio Shack center under the track

http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103429

So far they work great..

No special way to set. I just create a pocket thru the cork and into the ceiling tile so the magnet's are flush with top of the cork roadbed. I presently have not even glue them in place so I can make side to side adjustments.

I know of a fellow who ran an DC powered O scale layout for years using telephone wire which has to be what....26 Ga. or so?  and he never had a problem.



WOW teleco wire for O scale...Then I should be OK for N scale

I'm just assembling my baseboard of 60"x32", and I saw that excellent plan on page 1 of this thread by Trebor (N scale), and I nearly "kidnapped" it, but on second thoughts I stay with the one I'll stay with the one I already have.
