    Hey Guys!!
    Hows it going!!
    Yeah the Forum is up and Running!!!

    Here is my thought...dun...dun...dun!!!
    I am beginning to dislike my current layout and have been searching for another layout.
    I couldn't find anything I like.
    So I thought maybe the guys at the forum could help me out.
    So the challenge is to redesign my existing layout to fit with the era i am modeling

    Parameters:
    lOGGING/MINING SETTING
    Would like a roaming logging camp
    A 4X8 table is all I have to work with
    set in the 1950's Late Steam Erly Diesel
    Small rundown town in the center of a mountain valley
    preferablly a mountain in the top right hand corner
    little to no elevation
    can have tunnel
    must include roundhouse and turntable(seen in photo)
    Must Include following Buildings
    In Photo:
    Yellow=Mine (three stalls)
    Green=Canning Company
    Blue=Grain Warehouse
    Light Purple=Coal Loader
    I am curius to see what you guys can come up with
    Hope I can get a few tips and tricks
    PHOTOS AND DRAWINGS ENCOURAGED!!!!

    I think I replied to this thread before the gauge was changed. I was wondering if you had a reason that you had to limit yourself to a 4x8 table instead of an around the walls shelf layout?
