got the valances on and the benchwork done,,,getting close to figuring out the layout,,,,,,,,,from vision to paper to plywood,,,,get the plywood on in the next day or so then start sketching out the track and turnouts routing onto the plywood,,,,,,,
the island benchwork and valence are 5'4"x 21'8"
theres 4'8" aisle space at the entrance and 36" aisles around the rest

I go with 1x4 s on 1' centers to attach risers to hold up the plywood track base,,,The cookie cutter style,its about the eaiest way to deal with grade,,,I'll have 5"s of grade in the layout,,the lower shelf is for storage,,,,and it stabilizes the upper benchwork,,,,,
