I have been away from the hobby for close to 40 years. Purchased a Kato Super Chief starter set and it was enough to launch me back into model railroading. I don't have much space so my layout is going to have to reside on the bed in the spare bedroom. When visitors come, 2-3 times a year, the layout will have to be stored in the laundry room. The bed can be pulled away from the wall, so reach should not be an issue. I posted a couple threads when I was just beginning but now that I feel I am ready to start construction, this thread con document my progress. I want a mix of running trains and switching opportunities. I need a passenger station for the Chief. I plan to start with the double track ovals, then add the yard and interchange track at the top. Next will be the reversing oval which can double as staging tracks. Last will be the interior and elevated industry spurs. I am thinking about a coal mine above and maybe a power plant below. I can adjust the final design of the spurs as I build the rest of the layout. I know that the both mainlines go through the diverging legs of the turnouts at the bottom left but needed that for space. I can have lower speed limits near the yard entrance as well.
