The sceniced part of the layout is 13 by 19 feet. There is a 14 ft staging extension on the left side as you face the layout that goes into a closet under the stairs.

Sooo, Danica gets a large, beautiful ocean going vessel named for her. And your wife gets a rusty old barge?
You're a braver man than I am, Gunga Din!

All kidding aside - looking good. Can't wait to see it again in person.

I posted a short video showing a train coming out of staging on the layout. You can find it here.

No plans for an official video at this time. I may do short video to augment the book, but first I need to get the manuscript submitted and then take a deep breath.

Looks great Bernie. Certainly a change from the other layout, but I think modern modeling looks great and has lots of detail opportunities that you have captured very well. Nice job!
