Here is the track plan I have come up with. No, it's not a cad file but it's the best I can do on short notice. The room is 18' x 21', so the grid is 12". Having St. Anne stacked on top of Elizbethtown hasn't been a problem since there are only 3 operators during an op session. Plus it gives me the longest mainline run. Of course by now 95% of the visible track is handlaid, and about 25% of the scenery is in. This past week I added the hardshell behind the mine on the upper level. The backdrop is complete from the end of St Anne to the mine. Many structures have been built, including a scratchbuilt coaling tower, the Chama sandhouse and water tank. On the upper level there are two water tanks plus the depot and five other structures in St Anne. Not everything on this plan is labeled but you get the idea. Elizabethtown looks a lot like Chama, NM. The only difference is the siding by the depot and the south end of the yard, which has been drastically compressed. St. Anne resembles Silverton, but then again I'm just trying to have fun with this.
