An interesting test project by Ken Patterson using magnets for modular layout construction.  First topic on his monthly video.

It's possible it's "an obvious", but also possible I might be indirectly flattered by this since Ken is local. Our N-Trak club finally adopted my design using the same sort of magnets to attach module legs. By "adopted", I mean, "Hey, Mike, wanna do your nifty leg thing to the yard?" Ken may have easily witnessed setup or teardown with the magnet system over the past year.
