Greetings, everyone! I don't get around to posting as much as I used to (I still lurk when I get time). I've been very busy with various projects, but I have started construction on a new layout, the Copper Ridge Railway (version 2.0). The CRRy 2.0 is the successor to the original Copper Ridge Railway, which was my not-even-halfway-finished previous layout that got the ax when we moved a little over a year ago. The new Copper Ridge will have basically the same theme--continous mainline, branchline that runs to a higher level, copper mine on the upper level, interchange where branch meets mainline. There will be some other industries, too, but I haven't fully decided on them. The main purpose of the layout is to give me a diversion--most of the fun for me is in the construction. So I'm not 100% serious about its operation. One day I might decide that a hopper car needs to be placed on a particular spur. The next day a stock car might live there. Who knows! Below is a picture of the track plan. It is based on Mike Fischer's "Little Layout." The dimensions are 2' x 4'.
