D - You are a mad man! I'm going to stick with one of the 2-circle-ish plans we have recently been working on. I'm going to play with it more later tonight. Need to run take care of a few other things. for the moment. Thx!!!
Darrell, et al, how do I get this plan of Darrell's into my software? I tried the 'ole click n drag but it only brought in a PDF picture. I cannot modify or continue to work it. I think I'm leaning here to this one, but deleting the extra turnaround in the middle and going over it to be sure everything is 072 or larger with 6" spacing from walls and other track so I can run ANY big boy type engine I'm crazy enough to buy. THX!
At the bottom of my post in the area called attachments it says Files (1).
The file name is hp289 around the room 072.layout
Click on the file name and save it to your Mac.
Double click the downloaded file and it should open RM Pro with the layout loaded in for you.
Great. Sent in my track plan that Darrell helped me with to Steve at Ross. He's going to get back with me, and we will see where I go from there. Thank you Darrell and the other folks who got me to this point. Once I get this track plan finalized/tweaked etc. I'll jump over to the electrical section. I don't understand squat on wiring and powering all this, so that's the next challenge. THX!!! I'll post a more as this progresses. I have enjoyed reading on here and watching others develop and build, so I guess someone might enjoy watching my progress over the next months/years too.
Glad you have something you like, I look forward to a build thread so I can see it take shape!
This basically where I ended up at just shy of 15' wide and just shy of 17' long. I sent it to Steve at Ross and I'm sure I'll use his switches, just decided on track either Ross, Gargraves, or (GASP) menards tubular with the ross switches. I'm also trying to figure out power and control on one of the other pages here. I'll get there, you guys have been a great help. MIGHT make a tweak or two IF I come up with something interesting to add, but not quite sure. I've got a couple wacko ideas to create some elevation changes, but we'll see. As long as it works with my table as seen on previous page. Thx.
And in the spirit of sharing, the room had 8 new LED lighting discs installed this week. The painter started on Friday and should finish painting this room by Monday or Tuesday. I'll be at a standstill for a couple of weeks after that since the new carpet doesn't go in until the 31st. I guessing I can build my benchwork thought September over a couple of weekends since it's not a complicated plan. Feeling good about my progress.
