    hi Columbia,
    the plan mentioned is described in the jan 1970 issue of Model Railroader.
    I've been doodling a bit with the plan, always liked it.
    You have to be careful by choosing a new minimum radius. Length wise you have 30% more space,
    so the minimum radius could 30% or a bit less larger. A 15" radius seems quite possible.
    I do not have the orginal magazine any more.
    A second version can be found in "48 Top Notch Track Plans" as plan #4 on page 5
    called the Mohawk & Hudson, built in a 7 x 2,5 space.

    A far more elaborate plan can be built in your space, like this one:

    Though a wee bit wider then the 5,5 feet you have.
    Wish you the best
