Not that I want to be a wet blanket, but the last time I checked 60" equiled 5'.  How you going to fit this in a 4' (48") module by just selectively compressing the approaches?  Serious though, it would make an inspiring model in an 8' module.

Jim,

Two cantilever towers (160' each) + two approach towers (40' each) + two
40' approach sections + 30' center section = 510' x 1/160 = 3' 2
1/4". This Leaves just enough for connection tracks at each end. I
would love to do the full thing, but that would force compromises
elsewhere, or cause me to enlarge the garage (even in N!).

I'll keep the group posted.

Doug
