I'm in the early planning stages for a possible garage layout (16' x 2'), with another possible extension (mainly staging). I've been dreaming about this thing for a while and have gone through a few different versions, but this one I like the most so far. I love passenger train operations (I may include a spur or two for some freight switching after I add the extension) - I grew up around them, riding them (even got to ride a loco once as a six year old and the engineer let me blow the horn for some of the crossings), so they're in my blood. The main line may even become electrified (my favorite passenger trains). Once the extension is in place, trains will come and go in and out of staging. Until then, they will serve only as models on the tracks, while the regional line will provide me some operating interest. What do you guys think?
