Required 4 large dump truck loads of dirt to fill retaining wall; 4 canvass bags of gravel #9 weighing 1 1/2 tons each, to cover track balasts throughout. There will be two outer loop mainline tracks each 150 feet long; the retaining wall area will house a rail yard with multiple switches, sidings, loco sheds, etc. The layout will be controlled using a 12 amp Massoth DCC Command Station powered by a Massoth 12 Amp DC Power Supply and a Massoth DiMax Navigator hand-held wireless controller. All track switches will have a Massoth Single Channel Switch Decoder Installed.
