I am beginning work on my first layout, unfortunately I don't have the most space, but I would like to maximize what I have which is a 5x8 table. I have two ideas in mind, Ideally id like to have a tunnel, some industry, and a small town on the layout. It has to be able to accommodate some larger curves for premier steamers and 0-36 is just to tight for that.
I would love to find a way to make the setup more interactive and have the ability to run two trains at the same time. At the moment the minimum curve needed to run the passenger train would be O-48 but I don't want to lose too much real estate for the city/industries.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
