Junctionmad Posted April 22, 2015 Share Posted April 22, 2015 (edited) Hi foilks , how that I have the space, I can plan in earnest. I attach a outline track layout based closely on the prototype, track layout around 1970-80. Ive moved one crossover and some of the turnouts are on curves unlike the prototype , but all the track formations/movements are per the prototype. layout is 16' by 8' , no curve under 2'10" and all points 1:5,1/2 or greater Ive taken a few liberties with the town representation and the station road access Ive signalled the ballinrobe branch for passenger working as per an old signal diagram I came across. Im going to operate the Ballinrobe branch as if it had survived into diesel passenger service ( plus I can justify running a few steam locos if I want to.) I attach the PDF Id appreciate any feedback . I plan to build the turnouts in 00-SF ( 1mm flangeways ) and use C&L oo track for visible track and keep the PECO code 75 hidden ! Given I had to shrink the length , Im still looking at exactly how a freight train , that is Dublin or Limerick bound would be extracted from the goods yard , I suspect the main lines would be used in the model for the loco run round, whereas the real thing might have enough space to do it in the loops its a big project and will take me a long time, its will be DCC from the start , but with MERG CBUS for layout control ( as well as MERG DCC controllers ).
