Woohoo! My layout is not only started... it's actually in progress... I've been trying to plan out how my layout might look by playing around with the Unitrack I have... which included building a yard. So far so good... I also ran a passenger train around to test a few things out. Here's the broad picture: After taking this picture, I rearranged the track closest to the camera to have a slight curve to it. So here's another shot of the redone track with a passenger train on it: The staging yard isn't much to speak of at the moment, but it will be hidden behind the scenery... A total of 5 tracks... Trains will bypass the yard on the shortest yard track: Here's two shots of the latest draft of the yard: And lastly the extent of the yard lead: I'm planning on doing a shortline run up the middle, which I don't have the track to do as of yet. It will be where my Cape Breton Central Nova Scotia locomotives will be running and servicing industries. I need to buy some more straight track to round out the yard... as well as some more turnouts to handle industries, as well as a passenger station near the yard. All told, it's neat to see this come together... I will of course, be adding risers and such to give this some depth. There's room for both causeways and culverts here and there.... Feedback?
