Over on Trainorders.com, I started a thread asking about extras that make a layout more convenient. Things like cup holders so drinks stay off the scenery. There are some interesting ideas that popped up, but you'll need to be a member to follow the link (the site is worth the registration money).

I've been thinking about how I can transfer the trackplan from the computer to the plywood, and I think I have an idea that beats carbon paper and tracing the printouts. Instead, I'll just put staples down the centerline of all the tracks and tear the paper away, leaving a thin metal line where the cork should be glued.
