Looks like a great start.  Thanks for sharing the ideas and photos. I am starting to plan a basement layout (wife wants her living room back) and appreciate seeing other’s ideas.

Good luck,

Scott

Thanks Scott!!

Good luck to you as well on your layout.  I am including a town in the middle on the first table with a two track street car line (I'm running three MTH PCC's).  Then on the other table in the far back i figured I can add a engine shed or a industry.

Great layout in the making.

Is this going to represent the Delaware Valley? I see NJ Transit, SEPTA, and Amtrak, and you mentioned a streetcar line with PCC cars.

Just curious, as this is one of my favorite train areas. Also, that would make it a great candidate for overhead catenary.

Yes, this area will represent the Delaware valley area.  I am from Philadelphia, and currently live in New Jersey. I grew up next to the northeast corridor, then lived near the Atlantic city line. My PCC's will consist of two septa and one NJ transit pcc. I plan to add catenary as well.

I've wired my station this weekend and completed my inner loop.  Next weekend I plan to work on the street car line and wire the bridge.  I wanted the bus station dock to be attached to the back of the last platform, however it would interfere with my road and street car line, so I decided to move it to the end of the station.20200223_17370920200223_17371520200223_17372420200223_18012420200223_180246

The reason I asked about track radius is because your mainline track at the front of the table appears to be about five or six inches from the front edge. If you're using O-54, will you have adequate track clearance at the rear edge of your 5-foot (60-inch) table? I have an Atlas O-54 track loop on a 5-foot table and the track centerline is only about 3-inches from the front and rear edges of the table.

Yes I will have enough clearance at the rear edge of the table.  I actually was surprised, also my table may be a little bit more than 60".  I will check when I get home.
