Layout-Nemours Children's Hospital: Jack Proud
reported that he has visited the layout in Delaware and passed
around photos he took of the layout. The photos show that the

covered. It is in the center of the layout. The unit is freestanding
and in the middle of the room. There are buttons on each side
to operate the trains. Jack's report is online at:
Some things still to do:

3) Possibly build a mock-up of our plan.
4) Make use of Jim Shourt with the layout and electronics.
