RR ties are in the way when you want to get under the bus from the sides

True, but if there was a reason to, I guess I could put ramps on the ties. There is not much to do from the sides on my bus. Even if I did it takes less time to slither from one end to the other than to set up ramps. I have laid tools and parts out the side for easy reach, I just don't enter or exit that way. HTH

The RR ties used to drive into position could be pulled clear for access.

Always another way to do things when your bits and pieces are modular.

Using proper cribbing techniques, you could also go higher in layers, if more height was desired.

RR ties are lovely tools for the home hobbyist.

happy coaching!
