  1. hello guys, im in the middle of laying out my yard on my layout. i am running a partial double main line through my yard. i have cross overs at each end and im adding a A/D track...maybe! what is a good length to have on one of these tracks? is there a minimum length at which it would not be benefiscial? right now, i have 29" of length. im running a short line railroad, so i wont be pulling lengthy trains. the yard im modeling is at this address. its the one at the bottom of the page... if anyone has any input, please feel free. thanks!:wave:

    MasonJar It's not rocket surgery

    Your arrival/departure tracks should be able to accomodate the longest trains you wish to run (or maybe 95% of them). After all, the completed train will be arriving/departing from this track...
