A lot of work, looking good.
Since there are no dates on the posts, I am wondering how long it took to get where your at?
Was this all done since around last May?
I was wondering about the white posts too, I am glad someone else asked before me.
I thought that maybe you were going to build it down low and somehow lift it up later on.  ;D

I started the wood in April 2020. I spent 30-50 hours a week on it during the initial lock-down. Now I'm doing maybe 20 hours a week as I want to get other stuff done.

Pictures are simple. There is a link to instructions in my signature.

Wow, like a full time job.  :)

Here's the latest:

BEAMS!

You can see the track is up in that area because one of the switches I'd repaired was bleeding current from the fixed voltage pin, and I decided to hard wire the lights in the two manual switches that go into the Hornby engine shed.

Here's after putting the track in and wiring a few of the lights:

Beam me up Scotty, I mean Terry.
How hard will it be to get in under there if you need to, after the top goes on?

I wish I had more room like some of you do. :(

That's why I'm doing so much before the top goes on. Basically the layout will be done when the top goes on, and all the trains are within arm's length of the edge except the west end by the schoenhut town.

My dad and I built a standard gauge layout under the an even lower O layout when I was in high school. That was 24 inches to the lower edge of the layout. This is 35 inches.

Today I'm going to buy one of those reacher sticks with the clamp on it.

How are you coming with your layout. Been watching this tread but you have not been giving us a look.
Stay home with your trains and be safe
