Okay...based on feedback I've received so far in my other two threads, I've made some changes that I think make the layout better. First of all, I increased the width of the layout. It is now 36" for the majority instead of 24". To be safe, I went out to a 36" workbench in the garage and made sure I could easily reach the back of it without leaning on anything. No problem. The only thing shown in this picture is the mainline and hidden staging. I decided that these two items are the most critical and need to be addressed first. I also have passing sidings on each end of the layout. I'm working on industry spurs, but I think once I nail down the mainline and staging the rest will be pretty easy. So...let's get to it. Once again, I'm modeling modern day BNSF in N scale. One other note...the staging will likely be hidden behind scenery and not a backdrop like is shown on the drawing. I put that there just to show that it is indeed hidden staging. You can see the image below or you can go HERE for the full size version. Okay...let me have it.
