This is my new idea for the scenic section of my layout... The old idea was just too convoluted and used way to many grades... helix's... too early for me. Keep in mind the terminal is now constructed... Anyways, lets play color by numbers: green = passenger terminal tracks yellow = freight terminal/yard tracks light blue = engine facility tracks dark blue = turnaround/branch line into mountains white = valley branch line red = main line the inspiration for this section of the layout comes from: http://www.trains.com/mrr/default.aspx?c=tp&id=93&size=&scale=20&type=&keywords=white river in fact where the loop is located in that layout... I kinda plan to almost 100% rip off the scenic area there... I'm working on another revision... very scenic, less industry... don't know what I think about it yet.
