The sections are fairly light, about 5-10 pounds with folding legs and valance. We did not use any exotic materials in the construction. Mostly kiln dried, premium pine lumber, quarter-inch plywood and eighth-inch masonite. Each section can be lifted by one person, though two people make it easier as they are a bit bulky. We are glad we kept them to four foot lengths. Gerry and I were discussing the fixation some have on light weight construction and we both believe that it can be taken too far. Stay away from three quarter inch plywood and you'll be fine with regard to weight.

To assemble the road show layout, the only tool needed is a 1/2 inch wrench. If you are in a hurry, a 1/2 inch socket in a power drill speeds things up. It should not take us more than 15 to 30 minutes to set up.
On Sunday I finished adding the valance and fascia. It is now ready for the next steps - lighting and the foam terrain.
On a separate subject, I received a notice from Google that my photo quota has reached its limit. So you may find some older photos missing as I go back and purge some images.
