I have a 10 x 20 canopy and I wish to put a raised layout, like modules under it...My knees and legs just don't cooperate so good any more when it comes to getting up and down on the ground....as it is now I can't keep the leaves off my on ground layout so I am thinking about going this route....Is it feasable?/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/crying.gif

You bet, keep all the switches on one side so you can get to them from the viewing area. I'd have aless one large 10 X 20 loop. the 2nd main inside has switches so you can play while the outside is running and keeping the action going.

Raised layouts are the wave of the futre, there are at least three of us that are constructing them this year. Take a peek at Richard Smith Port Orford Coast railway for the prototype.

I'll be posting pics as I get mine underway in the next month.
