I've been enjoying the blog but have been a lurker for quite a while. Finally figured out how to post a comment.That layout is coming along great. For the transformers etc. you could try a small rolling wheel table with lockable wheels. It could have another shelf under the top for another transformer or some other control. I did this on one layout. You can then move the controls from one side to another as you try it out and decide what you like best. Might be a good idea for you. Works well unless you have lots of wired blocks and wired electric switches (turnouts). For the permanent lighting of accessories/buildings you could have a transformer on a shelf "hanging" under the layout.Alternatively, you could run a couple of 2x4's or vertical 1x4's attached under the layout and extending out from the side to make into a transformer/control shelf. We did this on one layout. In any case, you'll work it out to your satisfaction I'm sure. Have fun!John
John,That's tremendously helpful, thank you. I thought about mounting some of the electronics directly onto the benchwork thus your thoughts confirm a bit of my thinking. What power do you use to run the layout (ZW, KW, etc.)?Marc
