After my UP loco ended up in a dozen pieces on the floor after derailment, I've decided to scrap the project of adding to my current 8x4 layout. I started building it without any planning, and ended up adding on rigged up pieces here and there.. it ended up being a disaster. So now I want to start over. I only have three weeks before I'm off to college, and I may be moving out even sooner, but I don't want to lose this dream, and I really don't want to put it on hold for four years. If I get it started now, it's something I could do on weekends and the such. Now for all the technicals. I have all the equiptment I need. Plenty of track, cars, buildings, etc. All I would need to purchase is new benchwork and scenery materials.. all in all I would think around $100 to $125? The main question I have is this: I have about a 15' by 8' area in the corner of my basement to construct the layout. Should I redo the 8x4 I have now? Or should I do a wraparound type I usually see here? My main goals are to have room for a small town, a large factory area, and room for two trains running simultainiously. Thanks in advance to anyone who reads or replies!
