Here's the future , The center section has already been built as two modules/ dioramas and I spent so much time building them that I don't want to tear them up so I designed the rest on the layout around them. The curves will be either 18" or 20" since I only have about 16' and I want to be able to run a train in a loop. I could have gone with 22" curves but then the city scene would have to be axed due to how much space wider curves would take up (catch 22 I believe) I ferry dock might be longer or shorter than what you see. only the mainline is to scale. I just scetched in the other trackwork. The mainline will be partialy dual guage track since I dabble in a little narrow guage here and there. The logging area will be determined when the benchwork and track for the mainline will be laid so I get a 'feel' for how much room I actually have. It's hard to get an acurate picture looking an an empty room and a layout scematic. What do you guys think?
