Joe,
I understand what you're getting at but the back track is 2 inches higher in elevation than the front track and TT. I like multi level trackage and right now the back track is there purely for scenic interest. As soon as I have more room, I will build a module with a 180 degree turnback curve on a 2% grade that will go on the left side and connect the front and back tracks together.
