Dennis Sirrine's Layout Dennis has an unbelievable layout. I believe his budget was one million dollars. It's just huge, and the garage is full of racks of locomotives. He can run battery power and track power, uses the same air motors for his switches as I do. The trackwork is unbelievable, it is PERFECT. It is laid on a foam roadbed on concrete. All the "lines" of the track are perfect. The first thing my friend R.J. DeBerg said to Dennis was: "did you line up your track with a laser"? "Yup" was the reply. He is planning an extension into the other half of his back yard. Just an "omigod" layout.
