On the track height issue.  Let's use the turntable and roundhouse for an example you will have to cut out the benchwork in this area and lower by what ever it takes to get the track inside the roundhouse at the same level as the turntable.  I wouldn't use foam under the roundhouse . I would mount the base castings for the roundhouse directly to the plywood cutout from your benchwork.  You will still have to lower it to get the stickup right.  Take a look at the brick roundhouse installation pictures on my S&S RR build thread - that is exactly what I did.  A little time with the saber saw and a frame buildup underneath and you are there.  Give me a call or send an email if you have questions.

New update. I talked to John S and I determined that the 1/2" plywood will be removed where my two roundhouse's will be and replaced with 3/4".

Then I cut out the plywood and did this Future abutment to go around the roundhouse.

Dennis


It looks like you are making good progress. I can't wait to hear about a test run with a locomotive.

Dennis,


You have certainly been busy.  I like where you added the curved plywood and increased your radius.  It looks like all your track is flowing smoothly.  Looking forward to your progress.

That's quite the collection of 1-2-3 blocks :-)  I bought 1/2 dozen bricks to use as track weights, they're a lot cheaper :-)
