So a little while ago I got the Atlas O Track Designing software.
I have a design in mind for my "Dream" Layout. I plan on modeling it after El Paso Texas where, according to my research, is the only spot (in Texas) where the Union Pacific, Southern Pacific and Santa Fe all converged. The largest locomotive I plan to run is the Union Pacific Big Boy (probably a Vision Line). Here is some technical details on the layout.
Table size: 280.15" x 266.49" (Roughtly 23' x 22')
Maximum Curve: 0-72
Number of Loops: 3
Planned Access Points: 3 (One in each mountain, one under the city)
With that said I would like some input on the following,
- Over all design
- Some problems I may run into while building it (Exclude size of space needed)
- Some lessons and words of advice to me based on building your own layout
