Reply to "2-rail Layout building"

Just an average guy with an  overall plan.  We purchased the largest basement available within our budget then started to clean out the space, paint the walls, laser a datum line, and hang 200 linear feet of module knees.  Then, town by town, I added 8' modules like dominos as it kind of seemed fit.  My plans were sketched on the back of a 11 1/2"  X 17" enlargement and then got lost, so it then just grew organically, powered by memory and  imagination.    I am not so much an operator nor   a looper.  The RR purpose is to provide commuter passage to end of run towns  and supply the merchants with fuel, building supplies and out bound shipping.

This was to be a meandering country connecting RR on one level with mild topographical features but I kept finding ways of adding spurs and elevations.  Having a busy outside work schedule there were many days driving when my idle mind would conger up a new twist. 

Now I am working on a fifth level running with 3r at 20" and 60" plus three levels of scale 2 rail between them.

Three dozen or more  engines and about 130 +/- cars are more than sufficient to perform all expectations plus a string of RDC's and gas electrics.

1100 feet of track with about 95 turnouts and five TTs turned out to be a bit much, but it seemed to be a good idea at the time.  Smaller is much better, really!
