The pictures below represent the progress on the intermodal facilities on the layout as of 9/11/2011. I still have a lot to go including adding the foam core that will go between the tracks so that they will be flush with the simulated concrete runs which the foam core will represent. Hope you enjoy!

Thanks,
Alan

alan, looks great. You might want to look at using gator board in lieu of foam board. Found foam core tends to crush easy at edges.

Thanks guys!! Redshift, the cranes are Lionel Intermodal cranes produced several years ago. They are operated by wired remote controllers and can actually move forwards and backwards as well as pick up and lower containers.

Bill...you have a great suggestion!! I never thought about gator board. I will be off to the hardware store to take a look for sure! THANKS!

Alan
