I started my 1st layout in 2011 after discovering the outstanding website from Carl Arendt . It serves a brewery, a depot and a teamtrack. It has a sectorplate ( for space saving of the runaround ) and is connected to the outside world with a cassette.

Thanks Jacques.

I wish we could get new members to post more photos, but some are limited by the computers and servers that they use. Using a photo host such as Photobucket, or Flicker still works, last that I tried, but some think that that is too much trouble. Some years back it was the only way we had, and we had plenty of posts. Has it's drawbacks, granted, but it's better than no photos at all.

Left view, the sector plate is hidden by a wall. The teamtrack is a busy place.

Nice work, the sector plate (turntable) certainly adds to the operational capability. More photos please!

Thank you Woodie  for taking some interest in my layout. I wanted my layout to have a sector plate , but the switching possibilities were very limited. Then ProfKlyzlr  wisely suggested that  I could connect my layout with "the rest he world" . In  my  case it was an interchange with the  other railroad crossing my layout on the overpass. So I made  a hole on the left backdrop, extended the track past the teamtrack and added a cassette. That  dramatically  increases the switching possibilities.
Of course I will post more  pictures
Jacques
