Yo Tom,
Have you posted a video of a train running thru the Ovalix?  I would love to see that in action!

You are most welcome Tom. I've enjoyed the journey.....more interesting stuff coming for the third level..... ;)


Greg,

The third level is going to be fun. Trying to get the track in where it works best for passenger trains, etc.

The neat part is that the third level is like building a new layout without having to remove the second level and start over, something we all know I used to do on a regular basis.

Tom,

Not that I don't enjoy watching the ovaliz increase in height, but I'm really looking forward to the top shelf of the A&S.


Jerry,

The Ovalix is at it's highest now. I'm also looking forward to the third level fun and games.

Tom ;D

Cousin Brucie,

Not the full Ovalix but it sounds like a good idea. Give me a few weeks.

I'm getting all the necessary stuff together to start the third level.

I have 50+ Peco turnouts to start with -



And 360+ feet of Code 83 ME flex track -

Tom,


Sweet, Can't wait to see the progress on level three. Knowing that your posts lag behind your actual build, you are probably half way around the room by now! Looking forward to see this all tie together. Should be awesome like everything else you do. Keep up the great work my friend.

Looking good Tom! That's some stash of infrastructure supplies. I hope to come visit soon.

Tom,

I guess that's enough track for a start, aren't you afraid you might run out?

Ohhh.....I have a feeling we're going to be running trains on the third level before too long.  Question - will safety helmets with face shields be required when Greg is running a train on the third level?   :P

Wait a minute Bob.....I haven't sent trains flying off the track since all the fun I used to have with the old Lionel trains when I was a kid.....and we all know that was a loooooong time ago.  ;D ;D ;D

P.S. - I'll provide the hard hats.  ;)

After doing that, may not be any plywood left in central Fla for a few days. Outstanding work. Extreme precision in planning and execution, Tom.
