Well, I’ve been away for a while as I reconsidered my layout and what it was going to take to get the problems I’d created for myself sorted. I got a bit overwhelmed with how to get myself out of the corner(s) I’d painted myself into, and decided that the best course of action was to start anew... I think this new layout is going to be a little more straight forward in terms of operation, design, and terrain. And hopefully, provide some better opportunities for learning. The layout consists of three concentric ovals connected by several switching options. In the center space is a small yard and a spur for a station. Visual interest is going to be provided by a small river gorge on one side and a pond on the other, both traversed by a number of bridges. There will also be a mountain that dominates one end, with two lines tunneling through. Looking forward to any advice or ideas you all might have!
