Got some more ambition and reconfigured the track again. I wanted to get rid of the goofy R24 s-curve and make the track arrangement less clumsy.
Now, the arrangement looks more like the previously mentioned Wingate plan, adapted to my available space.
As the narrow track gauge on the diverging point rails prevents me from running scale at the moment, I dug out by two early version (non-toggle points) SHS turnouts to make a small yard.
This helps me get a better feel for what my final vision is tuning out to be. Of course, assuming I can get Fox Valley track in the future, all the track geometry goes out the window, but I'll be able to get a more prototypical look.
I also plan on digging out some of my structures to get better feel for how thing will work out scenery-wise.
But for now, it's time to run some trains.
