I thought it would be a good idea to put all of my progress in once place. Some of this will be review of other threads, but I would like to use this space as sort of a log of my progress on the new layout. I will continue to post out side of this thread, but though it might be a good idea to have something more chronological and in one place. The original TBA was on one wall of my garage and had a loop going around the entire garage. I made the layout too wade to work on easily, had made some mistakes along the way and decided it was time for a change. Here is a link to the old layout web site: http://pegnsean.net/tba/ For the new images (no text) including those not included here try this link: http://www.pegnsean.net/pics/trains/new_tba I ripped all of this out near the end of 2004 and started over with a clean slate and garage. The plan is a double decker around the wall layout using a helix to transition from onelevel to another. I like yard action, so there is a VERY large yard on the lower level. I used XtrkCad to create the plans. This is a great program but takes some getting used to. best of all it is free! Here are the latest workign copies. Sidings are not in stone yet.
