My  spine is a sturdy keel,
my hair  unfurled sails. 
A lighthouse is my only lamp

If the sea does not capitulate,
red sails are  cast into a cleft
too wide  for me to cross,
I was trying to get to you.

Today, I encounter link to a 3D walkthrough of the layout:  Rensselaer Model Railroad Club in 3D.  It brings brought back the memories.  Still looks great.  Is holding up to the test of time.
