I currently operate on a 5x9 table and I am in the planning and track purchasing phase for a larger layout. I would appreciate any thoughts on sidings ,stub tracks, crossovers wyes etc ,suggestions or help with a material list. I am not familiar with scarm etc so I do my planning with pencil and paper.
Details layout area 16'x8' with a 30" walk area around the perimeter, 6' wide access to the room which is located in a finished basement.72" curve outer loop 48" inner.I currently have legacy and DCS operating systems with a Z 4000 and a Postwar ZW for power.I want to be able to operate 2 trains at once and would prefer to stay on the flat with no inclines or raised sections. With switching capabilities and some industries on the layout Attached is a rough sketch of my idea so far.
Thanks in advance for any help or input.
