There is something strange going on at minute 13 as the train? exits the tunnel there is a piece of rail across the track and it does not derail the train. Magic I guess.

Winn,
I don't think it's actually rail.
It looks like a bit of tree or thick stem of something, so the loco just pushes it out the way.
I didn't notice it the first time I viewed it.
Cheers,

And the picture jumps when it hits it, and the other thing on the right side too.

Weird seeing those trains being run on the 'wrong' track as if it were British prototype!

Elevate all of the layout.
Does away with current problems, eliminates the same problems in the future.
No crawling on the ground or bent over back pain.
No more always looking down to watch your train. If you have to be a giant that's different.
Sit down and watch your trains eye level while enjoying a beverage of your choice.

Chris, this is one BIG layout, way too big to elevate I would think.

Over 1300 feet of double track does make it BIG.
Dirk Carmichael, (passed away 2 years ago) helped build that layout and told me about it and some of the difficulties. He did that several years before I met him in 2012. Apparently there were issues with the track bed even back then. As I recall the owner was trying to set a record for a non-club layout.

Bridge4.JPG I think Greg wanted a picture of the "sleeve" or fastening clip that I use to holding the LGB track to a concrete base. The painted alum strip is made of 3/4" wide stock. I use a drill press to make 3/16 holes in the center. After the track is placed on the bed and connected to other sections via split jaws, I use a hammer drill to drill the concrete between the ties (maybe every two feet). Then I place an plastic anchor in the hole and screw through the sleeve or strip. I can adjust the amount of tension by screwing the fastener into the concrete.

Let's talk to Jim Stapleton about elevated big layouts.
