It amuses me that the on-stage/off-stage split is about 50/50. It makes sense given what you've got, but it's just amusing in general.

And how else do you expect him to replicate the traffic volume required?

Unless you use a h---x and hide the staging yard under the layout.

I've done it before and I'm sure I'll do it again.

But for this I decided to use the available square footage and keep the portability of the modules.

I'll now have 2 configurations, Original oval or staging yard. All I have to do is put the "end cap" back on.

It amuses me that the on-stage/off-stage split is about 50/50. It makes sense given what you've got, but it's just amusing in general.

It amuses me too! But like you and @Philip H said theres no other way!

So this is the core of a layout that will eventually be very very large? As you add sections ...
