Notes:

The layout was two independent loops on the base level, and one loop on the upper level. While most track was visible, the turn-back loops at one end were in the furnace room, and the other end was under a high hill. The layout lasted 23 years and used 1" extruded foam for its sub-roadbed, and 2" foam for scenic contours, supported by a grid of dimensional lumber. The layout was dismantled in March 2021.
