I used a 12" piano hinge to mount the control/display panel for the helix area and I used a magnetic latch to hold it closed.



A wider view of the helix control/status panel.



The view of the helix with the panel door open.



I plan to locate the Laser 3 Modeling "John Murray & Sons Coal Distribution" craftsman kit in this location. I have installed the spur track that will service this facility.



I have shaped/glued/wired all the Micro Engineering code 70 service/spur track around the center platform on the lower and middle levels.



It took quite a while to figure out how to shape the Micro Engineering track so it has reasonably smooth/flowing curves. I have also caulked/painted the remaining two shelf support brackets that support the middle levels on the corners of the center platform.



There will be numerous businesses/industries supported by the track around the cednter platform on the lower/middle levels.



A wider view of the lower and middle levels.

Doug,

The layout is wonderful and you've been very busy. It looks fantastic.

I look forward to seeing the layout again next Saturday.

You're doing a fantastic job here!   My wife and I also have a mushroom design layout.  Visitors love it and we  almost always hear the same thing, "there's more?"  I'll be watching for updates
