Re: Forgive my ignorance! Am I creating several reverse loops on my proposed layout?
not a member of the group, but they always have a busy room at
the National Convention. Since my layout is finished, it isn't
an interest to me. I used John Armstrong's suggestions in my
planning, 20 years ago!! How time flies. If you join the group
they may have more options for help??
The design elements I did use were:
Around the walls plan. Stair way up into the center for people, so no duck under.
Double track main line around the room three times.
Main Yard on one wall and three towns to switch on the other walls.
Hidden in a mountain two reversing loops where the track drops, so one loop over the mains, and one under.
During operating sessions the layout is run as a dog bone, so the main is three times clock wise and then three times counter clock wise.
visitor displays I can run two trains on loops.
40% of the main is in tunnels, so it makes the runs appear longer.
