**Puts on his geographer hat** One of the interesting things about global warming is that the changes are concentrated in a few areas right now, the poles being two of the those areas. What is going on here is that the ice caps are melting, releasing cold, fresh water into the northernmost and south...

I don't think backdrops are necessary. They can be a nice touch, but I also think they limit the visual experience of the layout (which can be a good thing if you want to force people to look at the layout from certain angles and not others.)

Peter Tell me do you cut the flat sheets up and place them like tiles or do you scribe(impress) the mortar joints.

I'm going to wire her up tomorrow and run an inaugural train. :D
