This past weekend we built the peninsula. The benchwork was cobbled together from old modules overlaid by a sheet of 3/8th ply. That was chippy stuff. Half the time I couldn't see my line to cut as it had chipped off.
This was all overlaid with acoustic ceiling tile. The end is an 18"r track and so I cut a 21"r on the ply. This allows 22" on either side between where Athens will be and the tail of the wye at Westport.
The divider is 2" foam board. I also changed the lighting. There is now a 4 bank flourescent above the peninsula.
I have seven building kits to build to get caught up. Model Power Chester Station and two more of the City Classics section houses, I've ordered the Merchants Row from Walthers and a few others.
