since moving into a smaller dorm space, my Door-sized layout is really too big. :cry: :cry: :cry: I'm cutting down to a simple 2x4, using again an Extruded foam baseboard on a table. Here's my givens & druthers: 2x4 to a MAX of 2.5x4.5 (smaller = better!) continuous running, but not a simple oval Small yard based on the Inglenook Puzzle (3 track yard holding 5, 3, 3 cars, yard lead holds engine and 3 cars, the 5 car track doubles as an A/D track) 3-5 industries able to take the random 5-car trains the Inglenook puts out. Industries should be interesting to switch, but *not* a second puzzle (eg, not a Timesaver) room for a small town (which could also be the 'industries' being switched) I have a few plan Ideas, but wondered if anyone else might have some suggestions.
