Let me preface this by saying that I have the SCARM software but don’t understand how to fully utilize it.
I am looking to build an elevated double line layout with switching between the two. I will isolate appropriately and power each line with one half of a KW so that I can run 2 trains independently. I want to use Lionel or Menards O (not O27) due to budget and local availability. If only one line extends over the L section, I am fine with that. I am also not opposed to using 90 degrees crossovers if necessary. I also don’t know which track to use (31, 36, etc) to keep corners neatly together like the straightaway sections.
Attached is a picture with the rough dimensions of my layout. The 4’ x 1’ yellow section is my control bridge and I would prefer not to go over that area.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
