    Okay...I'm with you now. Thanks.

    The industry area down at the bottom may be changing drastically because I'm considering going to a western flood loader for the coal trains instead of the tipple that I have drawn on there right now. Don't quite know how I'll arrange the tracks for that just yet, but we'll see.

    one last S-curve

    Hoss: you missed one S-curve


    at the north end of the south passing siding, coming from the siding into the industry area makes an S-curve I think there is enough room to shift the industry zone to the west by 1 5" section to fix that.

    WHAT IF....

    ....I did something like this.

    This is a quick and dirty job in Paint so it's not that pretty, but what if I changed the benchwork and did something along these lines?? What would that do to me?? With a benchwork height of 48 inches I don't think it would be hard to reach 36 inches to the back of the layout if need be.

    The circle in the upper right would be a coal flood loader.

    Still open for comments so keep 'em coming!! :)
