Ive been working in conjunction with ScrewySquirrel over the last few days and he has been very helpful. He came up with a plan that is very close to what I want. Shamus also supplied me with a design that was quite nice. Both plans have some very nice features that I would like to incorporate into the one design. So I have been working away trying to do just that. Im not finished yet, still have to work out where Im going to put an industrial area and siding... Anyway, my main concern at the moment is the grades Ive chosen for the Freight line that climbs up into the mountain? The outer track for the passenger trains will be at sea level. Could someone please comment? Any opinions in general about the design? Cheers, Troy.
