Unfortunately there are some technical issues happening on TrainLife right now. We are currently working on a solution for this and hope to have everything working properly as soon as possible.
Thank you for supporting TrainLife.
I am on train life from 35,000 feet in the air on a plane.
Put up 5 new shots showing the tunnel portals being fleshed out.

Good morning my fellow TL's.....Well after a year of time away from the old layout the move, being a full time father, worker and show committee chairperson for my train club's annual show..I have started the in the train room and working on my multilevel 8 x 10 and laid the track in place for the pin wheel staging yard to go around the whole size of the room. I was up to 3:00 AM on Saturday laying the cork and so far its coming along, wish I could post pics, but for obvious reasons we can't. Sunday I started the elevation module to raise one track 4" to go over the staging area, another 2" to give it some depth and another board level to maintain and service the some industries, grain elevator, lumber facility and scrap metal yard and locomotive service area. Next up is to line up the modules by the entrance of the room and build a drop in with three bridges to and water to place in that area once its time to operate. The plans for over the staging area 10' x 2 1/2' is planning to be a variety of industrial switching including a mine in one corner, the other corner, an oil refinery( if there is enough space there) and hopefully city/ industrial with roadway. It all looks good on paper and mind but reality will soon set in, its hard having to plan track work and layout in half the space I originally had, but have the module concept and it definitely helps with concepts and design. If anyone has any suggestions please send me a message and I will take ideas into considerations and if you a switching layout send me a video or pics to my email at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks everyone in advance
