I've always had some Kato Unitrack around for about the past 10 years for use in temporary displays or projects. This is the first long term use I've done with it. While it has generally has preformed well I am still reminded from time to time that it is still sectional track. I am only using one power feeder and will sometimes notice a drop in the speed of a locomotive in some of the sections furthest from that feeder.
I recently purchased a new camera that has a panorama function and wanted to try it out. On the left is a Digitrax Super Chief DCC system and on the right is their older Big Boy system along with a Tomix power pack. I use all these to program and test locomotives. At the top right edge of this photo can be seen some more Ikea cabinets. These will be almost all the way around the layout room by the time all the layout bench work is done.
Another thing being tested here is that this is about the height the layout will be when it gets around to this part of the room and I wanted to see how the work bench area would work out with the layout right above it. So far, no problem at all. When the layout does get to a point where it will replace this temporary layout, I'm sure the materials from this will be recycled again into another project.
