New space ready for layout

The contractors are done with the remodeling. These photos show the new layout space. I put a section of an older N Scale layout I had in storage to provide a sense of where the new benchwork will go. That section is about 7 and a half feet long.

The guys did a good job.  The sheet rock work is smooth and they repaired the wooden trim.

The carpet is trimmed with a metal edge, preventing people from tripping on it. This edge will hopefully not be too obvious when the layout benchwork gets built.

I will pick up some styrene sheets to extend the backdrop tomorrow.

At lunch today, Marty thought that the extra space might allow me to add an operator at Aquia Landing. That may work out. We'll see as the layout Gets closer to operating.
