I'm starting a Nscale layout using Kato Track that I would like to base on the Scenic Ridge. I'll be building it with my son and Scenic Ridge has everything he wants in a track, bridges, tunnels, and mountains. I was thinking about adding a foot to the "front" of the layout and trying to add a small yard. So I guess I have two questions, any thoughts about this as a concept? and when you are placing track pieces in XtrackCAD, how do you specify the direction that curves and turn-outs "pop" into the layout. It seems pretty tedious to place each piece and then try to move it into position. I hope I'm missing something simple.
