Hi Dave - I'm not worried about or concerned with any small discrepancies in the design. I realize that it's not an exact science and that there are probably going to be some discrepancies and am prepared to adjust for same as I go along. Having already built a double main loop 15' x 15' layout with a 4' x 10' staging yard (which Jan also helped me with a couple of years ago), I'm familiar enough with FT where I can make those small adjustments and FT has a small amount of "give", anyway. As long as I have a basic design to work with, I can adjust as I go.
Like you said, I now have workable solutions and that's what matters.
I'm just grateful to you and Jan for being able to come up with multiple ways to solve the initial issue of squeezing everything into a workable design, which is something I couldn't do. It's really a blessing to have people on the Forum who are willing to give up their time to help other train enthusiasts out with their particular issues - whether it's mechanical, electrical, construction, design or any other area.
I'll post pic's and keep everyone informed as I go along - I should be starting this weekend.
