To give display some height, have continuous circuit on low level and some form of shuttle on a higher level. In fact adding more shuttle lines would attract more attention and chances of every line breaking down is low.
The 3 train auto circuit mentioned on another thread might be an idea.

One option for the bridge near air traffic control would be a spindly metal trestle similar to the one on my High Trestle Creek layout. It was simple and would fit well with rocky area. Mine was made from card stock with some balsa support and glue dot rivets. Supports made from bass wood and card stock. A rickety rusty bridge would represent permanent construction yet still suggest a dangerous delapidated railway.

Bob Roegge wrote:To extend the motor shaft you might want to use brass tubing with an inside diameter that fits over the motor shaft. For a collar to secure it look in the model airplane hardwaare section of your hobby shop for "wheel collars" that fit over the tubing. The set screw should crush the tubing on the motor shaft. Inexpensive and easy to work with.
