I think this is the design I will choose to build for my first layout. It seems about the right size to attempt to build. I like the larger radius for when I get into the big engines.
I was wondering if you could incorporate a crossover vs the ‘x’ crossing by the station. With my young kids running trains I like two independent loops to avoid calamity.
One last thing….the designs posted by Ken-Oscale are inspiring. These layouts are the reason I purchased my magazine and digital subscription plus the compact layout ebook (I am also enjoying the many other benefits of subscription too). Wanted to thank you for all of the work and effort in posting and articles on layouts in the magazine!
Any help or thoughts are appreciated. I also appreciate your understanding if dredging a year old post is a faux pas.
