Greetings, After figuring a few things out in the Atlas Track Cad software I finally think I settled on a layout(4'x8'). It's nothing much to start off but as I looked at other layouts that were more complex, I saw the price just rise up and up. It was getting to the point that the cost would have been too much. Since this is a temporary layout for a few months and no scenery will be going in(only track and possibly the padding underneath(ballast I believe)) it will probably do fine. If I want to add anything more, I can always put in a couple more switches and have an elevated track or something like that. I do welcome any small suggestions if you have them or small additions. I had thought of adding a small branch line leading to what would be an industry but I'm not sure if I want to do that right now. Here's the picture anyways: One other thing, As you can see, I put a yard(or something like a yard) in the middle there. I had thought of putting it closer to the bottom where access will be but I thought it would be nicer if when the train is actually moving along the main line, it can pass closer to me. As I said, any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
