Hi all. I've been out of the hobby for about 10 years. My interest is N scale, USA prototype but freelance. I have passenger and freight rolling stock and model the post steam era........all diesel at the moment. Although I have my rolling stock and some turnouts, my layout went to another home many years ago. I'm agonizing over a few plans but now look like settling on this or something similar. I'm pretty much restricted to 8'x4' but will have access from all sides. I'd greatly appreciate any comments and/or suggestions to help me fine tune the plan. It is actually a modified version of plan 77 from 101 Track Plans For Model Railroaders. I need the yard area to store my trains, I do like watching them run and doing some switching. The idea was to, say, run a train out east bound and then after a few circuits/stops/car exchanges terminate in the west bound yard. Keep doing this until all trains have been run int the oposite yard and then (until I put the turntable in) reverse them with the 0-5-0 ready for next time. Look forward to your wise words.
