    Hello i have been away from board for a long time, no layout work done due to low cash flow. I have decided to start working on a track plan so when things get better i can proceed. I have enough modules built to cover 13ft on one wall and 10 ft on another, they are 2x4 ft the lsat one is 4x4 ft. I am modeling N scale. I will try to draw the room. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Paul

    My wife always thinks I spend too much time planning, thinking and reading.
    Do you have any specs on what you want? Maybe we should have something like John Armstrong's "Givens and Druthers" form where he asks for what you'd like and what your limits are. Give a plan of the room with problems; say what prototype you like; tell how you want it balanced between mainlines and switching; etc.

    I would like some passenger trains, and frieght. Also some switching but my main liking is watching trains run. I thought of having a town on the large end with a industry . Guess i will get out the paper and pencil.
