Starting OVER AGAIN I'm having a cabinet maker build me a 8 foot shadowbox layout section to start out with. STARTING OUT small this time. About a year ago I went gun-ho and built 64 feet of L girder benchwork in part of my basement. After I got it done and looking at it about a week The light bulb came onand thought who in the hell is going to build all this buy MYSELF So im trying another approach this time so we'll see what happens. No pictures Yet.

Craig,
Good luck on the new railroad. I wish I could find someone local to build some bench work for me.
I am building my railroad in 4 foot sections and finishing a new section before starting the next section. That way it appears like I have accomplished something. Eight feet is a great wat to go and can be finished to a high detail in a year or two.


My current build:

Well didn't workout with this guy seen him Thursday He wants 500 bucks to do one 8 foot section when I seen them on MRH site they build there's for 150 bucks each using cabinet grade lumber. So that's not going to happened. So everything is on HOLD I think I'm going to Start buying my dropped ceiling material and get it all and get that done in the next few months. With a nice ceiling done and LED lighting then the hard part will be done and ready for a new layout
