Hey Everyone,

I have been away for a while as we moved into a new house about a year ago, but I have the table built for my layout so now it is time to get some advice on the track plan. Any feedback or advice would be appreciated. I tried to not use R1 curves and also hide the R1 curved switches. I will control with a CS1 and hope to be able to run 4 trains at once.

Size is 12' Long x 5' Wide or approx 365cm x 152cm.

I would try to add a hidden yard. When I built my layout it is was basically like yours. However as my collection grew, it grows tiresome that I can't have a majority of my rolling stock and engines on the track ready to go. Don't forget to add some uncoupler tracks right after the switches, I wish i had. Other wise looks great.

Jlopez I like your idea about the hidden yard for the rolling stock. At the same time, I don't know if I am ready to make helix's and a false wall might give me some space, but then i may not have room for a town. I have added another siding which will allow me to store more trains. Thanks again for the tip!
