Okay, I have accepted the reality that it is going to take a longer than I wanted to be able to build my dream shop with my dream layout room. I have also decided that I do not want to go without an operational layout for that long. I got to figuring on what a fellow could do working within the space that I have.I do have a 24'x32' shop but I cannot realistically dedicate space to a layout within in it at this time. What I have decided that I can do is build a smaller layout that could be raised and lowered from the ceiling in the shop. We have our canoe and kayak stored in this way. Looking at those got me to thinking that I could use one of those systems with a layout. I would also like to use Kato Unitrack for this. I want to get the layout running and I don't really want to fool with finicky track. I have quite a bit of Unitrack that I have accumulated over the years. I would have to buy a few more turnouts. I looked at doing this on a door, but decided that since I will have 360 degree access that a 4'x8' with a small staging yard would be doable. I wanted to capture the flavor, I guess of a Southern shortline railroad. I think that this design that I came up with in XtrackCAD would let me do that. I am open to feedback and discussion, even criticism.
