Hi Titus

Just dropped in for the latest.

Your backdrop looks great.
Seems to have an exellent gradation from top to bottom.

The curved benchwork edge is a real plus as well.
All very inspiring indeed !

Yeah...Iain Rice is pretty clued on track-plans.
I've pinched a few of his from the Net...
...and bunged them in my 'cooking pot' !
( could be a very slow simmer though )

I have to say that I always felt that without a run-around loop; you ain't got a track plan.
I mean OK...'Inglenooks' are interesting as well.
( love yours Broadoak ! )

But Woodie has blown away all my track-plan pre-conceptions totaly, with his 'pole switching' Texas style !

Had always known about the 'flying switch'.
But somehow never came across pole switching, till now.

Think I saw it some years ago, as it happens, in some Westside Lumber Company stuff; but never put 2 & 2 together to make 5, and realised you just need a single switch spur, if you have a pole.

...marvelous progress Titus.
Keep it coming !!!



P.S. Elminero, thanks for the pics.
especialy the sepia Mexico, 1 page back; great stuff.
I guess all the cactus, got turned into Tequilla !!!
