As promised, a thread to document progress on my layout. Electricians were here to swap out my Federal Pacific breaker box, install LED lighting, and additional outlets. Bye bye dungeon. The "studio" room was eliminated as mentioned earlier. On the "list", remove nails from the 2×4's. I'll re-use them building the layout. Many of the coaxial cables in the overhead have been removed, they were remnants from the previous owners. Trying to decide whether or not to go with flex track or sections. The loose "period" is the 1950's, however everything from decapods to GP38-2s may be seen on the layout, even more should I acquire them, so sectional track would be correct, but I like the benefits of flex track.
