I like the building -- looks great. And the jeep up on wood blocks is a very nice touch as well!

That is pretty cool. I like his description in the video, "I hope it shows what can be done, with a little thought and a few power tools!", though, he looks like me in that he occasionally needs to do less trains and more yardwork.

That's really cool. I like the rotating section of track on the back. Very slick idea.

Thanks for the tips Glen. I had just started to experiment with that exact method last week (the linked 'frocks' site), but was unhappy with the results so far.
