 My layout has names from the Detroit area where I worked as a tower operator from 1957 thru 1960.  All scenery is glued and secured. Light poles, traffic signals, grade flashers, turntable and signals work.  Background is in place but not finished.  Scratch building and kit bashing is what I do. No computer operations. All operating is hands on and at the site. Prodigy Advance DCC wire. Wheelchair, not a problem, except table height is 53 inches.
