tomy rail tower

tomy rail tower ... I decided to try and make a high tower using all the 'A' rising curved rails I had (32)... and then put normal straight and curved rails in the empty spaces left going down... (because a complete circle of eight 'A' rails will rise two levels)... this is all one track... the train doesn't return on the same rail
