First post in 2017.
I'm thinking of extending my layout. The extension would be 12" x40". When I attach the portion, my layout is going to be C shape.
I'd like to include at least two industrial sidings and LA version of a creek with concrete walls. I think it's called "wash". https://m.flickr.com/#/photos/terryviews/2700939831/in/set-72157606457973152/
I'm also thinking of having a road but when I think about doing switching moves, the road might be just a pain to deal with.
Anyway I want to come up with a plan before March.
Hopefully I can show you the benchwork by February.
At the moment, I'm not using any fancy gizmo such as CAD. Using a big sheet of paper.
Following up my reputation of being a caveman of digital age.
Also, I finally bought Atlas GP9 loco on eBay.
I wanted get the loco with SP scheme for several years!
I have to change the engine number for my era so that would be another challenge.
I'll report back to you on the trackplan or something similar.
