Here is the second pass:





I wanted to eliminate some of the tracks crossing through town to make it less of a spaghetti-track-western town.
I prefer the old westerns.

I eliminated the inner loop and moved the town to the right.
In the original plan (off camera in the V1 photo) the right side was the engine house and engine servicing area.

What I like in this layout is that the town looks much better, at least to me.
What I don't like is that I don't really have an idea yet for where the engine house goes.

The bigger issue is that in the first design I could disconnect the new part,
and still have an operational layout if I find I need to downsize in the future.

If I take the right side off of this version,
I end up with a point-to-point between the depot and the freight house.
Not very inspiring.
