Hey there Justin. Its always great when people have a suggestion to get the ball rolling! Thanks. You talkin' prototype, model, or either? By the way, do you have one to start us off with? Yard scenes should be a big draw!

Well heck, I'm just gonna post one! :)



Here's the small yard that supports my layout's car float operation. It usually isn't this full of locos. I took this picture a while ago as a company shot gathering all of the equipment I'd lettered for my freelanced road.

:eek: wow! can you got a top down shot of that? I'm looking for inspiration for my yard :mrgreen:.
I'll try to remember to do that with my next roll of film. Actually its a pretty simple design, a siding on the main with three ladder tracks and a long lead for the car float.

nuts, my yard only has two tracks!

I was at union station in Warshington a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, it was night and I had no idea the trackwork around it was so complicated.
