Mainline Continues

I just realized that I have not yet posted my layout plan so I figure I’d better do it now as it might better explain what it is I’m trying to do 🙂  I now have the mainline coming from “Off layout” or what will be Canadaisle all the way through each of the three towns and then through to the West end of my yard. The mainline lead to Canadaisle currently stops just to the west end of my yard as well and about 8 or 10 inches lower. Until I can finally take ownership to the rest of the room my layout cannot expand any further so I am going to place a temporary helix at the west end of the yard. This will connect the two “loose ends” together and allow for some continuous running. This also will give me time to work in each of the towns placing track structures and scenery as well as working on my yard and watching some trains run until the expansion can continue.

A Better Link Here

Wolf Valley ShortlineWolf Valley ShortlineSorry everyone, one of these days I’ll figure this out better

Here are two links one larger than the other. The one on the left will give you the idea on one page where the one on the right will give you the finer details (so far at least) with elevations in inches in the red square boxes. Just keep clicking until you get the desired size 😉

Dang-nab-it!!!

Disappointing news comes with this post. It is starting to look like my train room will be “on hold” for a little while longer. With this Christmas season now over, well the gift buying part anyway, I figured I can get back to the room. A couple unexpected bills has darkened my progress. My family accountant (read wife, she is a Financial Analysis in her paying job) says we have to pay some lingering debt down before I build anymore in the basement.

The overtime I’ll be getting next month will now have to help pay for these bills and my room will have to wait I guess. However I am in negotiations for a smaller cut of the pie just to keep things progressing at least.

I have still been working on my new layout plan and it is still in the design mode but the mainline is set and some of the towns and industries as well.  Here is a peek at what I have so far. I am  trying to figure out how to model a Gypsum Mill  in the space with the “Y” in it so if you have any comments or suggestions on this or anything else with this design I would be most grateful.wv-shortline2

If this doesn’t work let me know and I’ll try to fix it.

See Ya
