I suspected that there would be some issues with building sections apart from one another. After some judicious cutting and fitting, it seems that things will be looking good. It may not fit in my space, but another inch or two out of my aisle will only affect me. The side benefit of the lone wolf modeler.
I've been laid up with a foot injury of late which has given me allot of time to spend cruising the internet. Having now discovered this forum, I thought I would invite everyone to view my personal blog about my Sn3 exhibition layouts and modeling adventures.

Thanks for your input.
The 85 ton is available for printing through Shapeways. It is amazing to see what others are designing from Z, N, TT, HO, S, O and possibly other scales. I am off for a visit with family in southern Manitoba so won't be working on any of my projects for awhile. Hopefully I can pick up some items I need and maybe my back ordered pantographs will get shipped by then.
Let me introduce myself.
I am Russian, but I am interested in American railroads and America of the 1950s at all. I collect railroad models in TT scale (1:120). I know that it is not too popular in the USA, but nevertheless there are some TT-scale modellers.
BTW, TT scale was invented in the USA in the 1940s! And today it is quite popular in Russia and some other European countries - Germany, Czechia, Poland, Ukraine, Estonia etc. In Russia TT is more popular than N.
A while back someone had shown and talked about a small battery powered drill motor. Can anyone out there remember what brand is was and where a person might be able get one?
The latest news for the LSR-NMRA Region is now available in the latest electronic issue of the MARKER LAMP.
New and great information on the up coming Convention in Dallas-Ft Worth and more.
Links in Magazine work just like MRH, PC, and IPad fine, if you use android table that downloads to My Library and places in Books you will have to cut and paste links into browser.
This video shows how to lay stock rails, frog rails, closure rails and the frog for the Switch-Works "Ultimate" turnout. Switch-Works is a set of jigs for assembling "Museum Standard" track featuring wooden ties, metal tie plates, etched frogs and machined points.
This is an Arduino program that provides high speed pulse width modulation suitable (with appropriate electronic drivers) to control LEDS, lamps, DC motors and DC locos. So far I have tested it with LEDs and a small DC motor. I invite those so inclined to try it and point out the bugs and suggest improvements. (There's more than one way to code a cat.)
