    In my previous post, there were requests to see the plan of our club's new HO layout (We were always a N scale club...), and this is our proposed track plan.

    (SAVEFILE was the only way I could get the file attached to the post...)

    Comments appreciated.... Bob

    Bob,

    There is nothing wrong with linking to a file, but, as per our discussions, I played around a bit with what you had. I can see why you were having problems attaching this file. It is a pdf and it is 668K in size. I took your file and did a screen shot (pressed "pri Sc") and pasted it into my photo app ("Ctrl-V"). I cropped out the unwanted stuff and was able to sharpen the image a bit. I saved it as a 62K .jpg. This is the results:

    Oh yeah, that is one nice proposed layout.:thumb: Easy access and a lot going on. Lot's of yard space too, that's what I'm adding right now to my layout. :D

    Thanks, Don. The wall to the far right of the layout is a half wall with a glassed in upper section (spectator viewing). I personally would have liked to see a roundhouse added to the mix, but the majority felt it ate up too much space. Thanks again for all your help, Don.

    Bob,

    Glad to help. I agree, a roundhouse takes up a lot of space and may be fun to operate, but not every layout can support one.

    It's been said that "a camel is a horse designed by committee". or

    "a compromise is when no one gets what they want."

    It's hard to get a group to agree on anything, looks like you guys have done a pretty good job.
