Roger your doing some great modeling here.

Yes the bigger spacing works very well.

Keep up the great work.

I haven't had a lot of modeling time of the last couple of weeks but what I did have was spent on planning and researching parts.  I am still hunting for supports for the Y shed roof on the passenger platform.   I've not been able to match what George used but I've found something close.  I'm also considering a different style of support that I have on hand.  I also realized that I've hit a point where things need to start being permanently installed so I took quite a bit of time to work on the module.  As nothing ever seems to transfer from paper to the real world I decided to mock up the models in my layout space.  It's a bit of a constrained space so I don't have much room for error.  The modules have to be less then 28" wide to fit though a door and no more than 5' long to get around  corner and be easily handled on a staircase. 

Its a good thing I did this as the straight section in the middle of the S-curve to the right was only 5 inches long.  A bit of adjustment later and it is now about 13" long, just enough to protect passenger operations.  The station module is at the front and will have a second module behind it to add more depth to the scene.  I hope it put together today or tomorrow and then get back to the modeling.
