    HELP, on yard area

    O.k. guys, I thought I was a pretty savvvy guy on programs and such and I have tried to work the Atlas freewarew program and I give up, either I am just a dumb $%&&&*$###^&^ or something. So here I am asking for help.

    What I have is a 2 ft by 10ft 6 inch area for my yard and engine service facilities, I am having all kind of trouble trying to fit and design this area, and I cannot figure out why, maybe its a mental block thing.

    So if you have any spare time on your hands and would like to design me one, I would be GREATLY appreciative, or maybe trade you something for your help.

    If interested just shoot me a line to so I can give you the engiine buildings list and foot print of each building I have for that area.

    Nope no curves on the ends, but I do have a 90' Turntable and a three stall roundhouse, a coaling tower (wooden type, it cannot straddle a track) sanding shed and towers, water tank, and SS diesel fueling set any hel would be great! The scale is HO

    Big Steel one question what are the size of the turnouts you laid the yard out with ?

    they are all number six but i just used it genericly the actuall car storage MAY be #4's but thats only if you use 4 axled deisels or small steam switchers and the line to turntable and roundhouse should probably be #6's since larger locos will be there.
