    Since there may be some problems with coupling/uncoupling on a curved siding, the interchange track on the junction modules was redrawn as a shorter, straight siding.

    Here's a new picture. Click for the original design

    Sorry,I like the original design better. :D It just looks more prototypical.

    The reason for the redesign of the interchange track is due to coupling problems on the curved siding... I like the original too, but I like reliable operations more... ;)

    I too like the original. If the switching is only an issue on the curved siding and why you went with option number two then may I suggest this. The curved siding will only be used a few times but the visual appearance of the overall layout will be forever.

    If you can get past the problem with the occasional coupling problem in lieu of the overall realism of number one I would go for the original plan if I had the choice.
