The turnbuckles were one of the larger challanges in this project,
but, as you can well imagine having built your own, it was one of
many! I used Micro Engineering towers and Central Valley girders for
the spans across the cantiveler arms. I'll post some more photos of
the layout and any prototype stuff I have later. If you have a copy
of Model Railroad Planning 2001, there's an article I wrote about
train elevators which includes a track plan of mu current layout.
