Lovely bit of building there.  And the addition of graffiti looks good.

Still staring at the damned thing and wondering whether my track plan is the best I can come up with in a small space ??? :-\

:smiley-laughing: The plan is scattered all over the forum, but if you look in Layout Planning - The Planned layout of Newport Nobby it will give you an idea of what I'm after in more detail than the plan below which is my poor attempt at Scarm.

Wow, you've done well with that!  Plenty of tracks to switch diesels. :thumbsup: :smiley-laughing:

Looks good - lots of track ! Only thing i'd suggest is lifting the smallest circuit up as a high level branch line (maybe moving it to one corner), but keep the busy yard low level and join it up with the two main curcuits - I did read you were not keen on embankments/cuttings etc, but I think it would add more dimension to the layout if you know what I mean... :thumbsup:
