    Hi Folks,
    Since I have the new steam engine and hope to get a BLI diesel also+ I have lots of "stuff" to run I have to incorporate a main line.
    I prefer no duck under, so if I take the closet out I come up with this plan with two 4 ft turnaround and a yard leading to the door.
    I also have lots of room for traction.
    What ya think?
    Chris. :)

    Room size is 16ft -8ft -8ft angle to door -10ft

    this HO .

    Chris that will give you a long mainline wth the out and back and lots of room for switching and maybe even some traction space !!!!!!!

    Looks good Chris :)

    Now I have a feel for HO gauge and spce requirements, it looks like with some suitable scenic treatment, you could easily get your main line through an urban setting system in..

    I guess you will be doing a roundhouse off the main line as well to store all those lovely locos your getting as well :)

    Regards
