Hi there, I'm a newby, I have done some finescale modelling the last years and wanted to do real diaramas. When I was very young I had a fleischmann starters kit, which always failed, I think my mother took it back to the store three times. I hope I have better luck this time, altough I don't buy the starters kit this time. Now, my house is really small, as I live in Amsterdam, so I have to build something that doesn't use up much space. So I deviced a module setup of ISO-A1 paper size, which you can stack for storage. I've made a design using two of these modules and which can be extended with further modules on the right joining the two main line tracks. The line in the middle is where the two modules meet. I've been carfull not to put any turnouts on this line. The maximum grade is 3.1% which is made before the "town" station. The sharp bent before the "iron ore mine" station is on a grade of 2.5% and has a radius of 19cm (7.4"). These two stations will be met only with short cars. The "steel mill" station will be used by train with long 60' cars. The smallest radius it will meet is 28cm (11"). I guess I will start by making the loop. Then add the stations in the middle, and finaly the big station on the bottom, which will need to be fed by the other modules on the right. As you see, I am going to make a large flowing industry, iron ore -> steel -> factory -> distribution center -> cities, etc. Altough that will take a long time (luckely), room and money. So what do you thing? Did I get the grades and radius right? Is it too cluttered? Any sugestions?
