Thanks to Ozzy for the inspiration. I'm gonna try to build the following layout. RTS uses 10 inch Atlas track so the design I made came out to a 5x9 but it will fit a 4x8 when done in Lionel track as you can see from the exmples below. First pic is the track plan. Second pic is Lionel's track plan 3rd pic is of an actual layout using this track plan. 4th pic is a spreadsheet of what it will cost me for track. Edit: The acutal layout in the pic is actually for sale on eBay right now. It's first auction ended at $4,495 and the reserve was not met.
