What's the Saying?

Cut once measure twice? Well, today I learned that I can't read my own plans and shorted my benchwork by 16 inches. So rather then fix the mistake, I took a cost saving measure and redesigned the layout to the new benchwork. This new track plan has half the track pieces, is more manageable and eliminated the raised sections. The cross table yarding areas are a neat little maneuvering area to change any trains direction (and I can almost due operations on this layout.).

So, I have the back benchwork built and have started slicing the foam for the top. I'm going to be putting that on hold so I can build the rest of the benchwork before I lay any track (at least I'll build the left hand leg first so I don't have to deal with the telepost in my way on the right)
