Thanks for your comments to Keith and me. That's one of the pleasures of this hobby ,,,hearing from your Peerz.
I used Peco flex rail for most of the layout , but I've been switching to MTL flex because of appearance and that it has a "memory'. When you set your curve it does not want to 'break the joint' as much as Peco. I've devised a track joiner method with the MTL flex that I use on a couple of module joints that I have designed along a curve. I couldn't use the telescope marklin track at these points. Because its on a curve ,I can flex in the MTL joiner quite nicely.
My original mountain double slip switch is a Marklin ,,and yes ,it can be a problem. BUT,,most of my problems with this switch is the fact that I went scenery nuts around it after I installed and ended up with an ELMERS ( white glue ) double switch. I'm going to replace ( cut it out of the mod and boil out the glue ) it sometime in the next year.
I have a 2nd dblslip on my newest mountain corner mod and it is one of the Jorger modifications. This time I have kept ELMER away and it works fine.Jeremy Brandon will help you get these if you are interested.
Coors is my beverage of choice ( non-alcoholic). I plan to replace the industrial area in GOLDEN with an older Coors brewery. The actual/real current Coors one is a modern plant and looks"concrete dull'. Mine will be kitbashed brick and more reflective of the older brewery of 60 + years ago.
I'm on my way to the Seattle NTS and am spending a week in transit here in the Rockies at Beaver Creek- Blackhawk-Central City- Golden and Denver.This area is the Genesis of my PIKE.
BTW,,I've registered my Pike name with NMRA. A very nice certificate comes with the registration. Makes me feel like a real railroader.
Keith has been my Advertising and Promotins Manager for a long time. He also is one of my best Z Friends. Thanks to him , the "G~B&CC" gets to be seen by more than just train show attendees and neighbors-family.

Hi Dave and Keith,
You've got a fantaZtic layout, Dave, and congratulationZ again on
taking the blue ribbon home (should we expect a PabZt Blue Ribbon Beer
brewery and/or billboardZ to pop up on the layout sometime in the near
future, or does CoorZ have the sponsorship, since they're based in
Golden, CO? :)
