We have the enclosure up. It looks great! It took Mike & and our son and son-in-law about two hours to do the track. They just wanted to make sure everything was square and perfect. The enclosure was simple to do, once the track was laid. Thanks for all your efforts, guidance and perseverance with us. We send some pictures soon. Have a blessed New Year!
