    Hello everyone...

    Sometime in the new year, construction will begin on a new house, and some real estate has been appropriated... err, leased... for the dream layout in the basement. I negotiated a 14' x 34' area :D.

    The layout will be freelanced and be set in the transition era... so I kept the curves 20" and larger - "N" scale.

    Here's the lower level. No industry tracks have been put in place yet, and nothing is set in stone.

    Wonderful site you have here - Lot's of great ideas and information.

    The schematic shows that it's a good basic design.... for a complete layout. What's the upper level going to be like? Only then can I comment adequately on whether the design is good, missing something, or redundant.

    Oooppps... link fixed...

    I'm still working on the upper level, which will represent a branch line, most likely more rugged mountain terrain and some mining operations and lighter through traffic. The plan is for a steel mill on the lower level just outside Taylor along the 14' wall, giving an onsite destination for some coal and ore.
