http://jasongray.myphotoalbum.com/view_photo.php?set_albumName=album01&id=Test_001 That is my track plan. The question is will that work on a 4x8 island Layout? HO scale. Right now rolling stock is limited so I have no idea what stock I will run or add not wanting a long train so I know I am not going to run a loco with more than 4 cars. I have two locos both DCC. Goal is to run them both most of the time single train operation but with the chance to run both on the layout simultaneously but not necessary. 1st Loco and 2 Passenger Cars 2nd Loco and 2-4 Freight Cars I am not sure what information you may need but I will gladly answer any question you might have that will help me with fitting this layout on a 4x8 area. I used Right Track program. Thank you for your time and patience with me. Since all the shops in my area arent worth a plugged nickel for help only good for wares. I am turning to you guys and gals here on the gauge since that is all I have so far everyone that has replied has been great so looking forward to what replies I may get good or bad.
