I like the track plan. There is a lot of room to add scenery.

I also like the track plan.

A small trestle would add to the scenery. If you leave the veiw block as is, short trestle on one side and a very short tunnel  ( say 2 or 3 inches )on the other the train would disappear no matter which way you run. Giving a means of passing through the veiw block.

Dwayne, I too like the new track plan and your idea of putting a trestle around the right end would make a great focal point on the layout. Good job my friend. :rah:

Dwayne, I like the look of the plan as well I wonder what if you lined up the road on both sides at an extreme angle with some sort of obstruction to block the view use a mirror and you could make it look like the road went thru the other side? Just a thought , Pat

Thanks guys for the comments and ideals....

In the spirit of Bob's Spring Challenge of "FINISHING SOMETHING"


I have had this on the shelves for more than 4 years maybe closer to 6???





So I have decided to incorporate it on the layout...Present plans is in the straight section in the upper left... this bridge is 12" long so some shorting will be needed.

I need to add more thickness to the layout so I have started adding some ceiling tiles over the foam.

Looks good Dwyane. You should have some buildings that you can use.

Well I was telling Bob earlier today at work ... that my son is moving back home (got this news last nite) ... so my new layout will either find a new home or be stored...so far I have not been successful with the CEO on acquiring new space...

Maybe I just need to get rid of this addiction to running roundy roundy and do something like Bob's Pine Creek....... or maybe something that can sit on the dining room table and be stored over my work area.

Stay Tune..... Same Freerail Time ... Same Freerail Channel....................................

The solution is simple Dwayne, raise the layout about 6" and let son live under it. :)

If you make him comfortable, he will never leaveuntil you are :old dude:.
