Well, progress on my layout had ground to a halt because of a major problem due to lack of planning. Basically, I was not going to have room to turn my trolley tracks in the corner over the RR tracks. So, I have come up with a simple solutiom: move the city/trolley portion onto its own peninsula. It then becomes a separate module and could maybe even be swapped out with something else later on. This also gives me an opportunity to extend the benchwork out from the wall about a foot, which will enable continuous running. Let me know what you think. Val edit: I should also mention that there is access to the yard from both sides.
