I was just taking a break from work and reread the first 40 pages on this discussion.
I think what you said back on about page 3...
"I am just an average modeler at best. Anyone can achieve this level of modeling.
I have little patience so I like quick / short projects.
That is why I choose such simple methods and materials.
If a model takes more than a few hours over a couple days, I kinda give up on it.
Throw it together fast and cover it with paint quickly."
That is a good philosophy.
I find myself being very much the same.
I need to post that over my work bench,
except the work bench is often the dining table
and I think my lady friend wouldn't appreciate extra signage.
As I went through I kept looking at your track.
I have a pile of beat to hell flex track that needs to be turned into hand laid track.
I also like your technique of just gluing the track down.
Some time when you have a moment,
a tutorial on making track would be greatly appreciated.
I am really curious about those little stub switches you have.
