Ok, what do I need for a maintenance depot? Once I get the track laid I think that might be the first thing I start on. For those who aren't familiar with the layout, here's the current track plan :) Not sure if it'll stay or whether I'll switch to streamline though... Pleased with the progress I've made in the rolling stock. That's the easy bit!

1st and 2nd radius... not ideal I know, as the 201s can only mange 2nd radius but don't have the space... I was thinking about trying to create space for an L shape. I was planning on having a refueling point, and I'll definitely get either the Bachmann shed or the peco one. Maybe the Bachmann two road shed and the Bachmann one road at the other end?

8 x 7, kind of! But I don't have the full rectangle, its the L shape on the layout. Each square represents one square foot :) By the way, how are you going to make the concrete cover over the track at Connolly? If you know what I mean :)

I know! They're practically identical besides the fact that one's Irish and one's English! The only thing is, if I was doing one, it would probably be a dead end, like at the port, as the space I have would be ideal for a terminus.

Quick suggestion. Perhaps a crossover from line 1 to 2 in the container yard, at the end, so that an incoming loco on road 01 can detach from its train, and run around road 02 to do other things. Also, the outside line, road 3, a spur off the entry road to act as check points, and a loco storage road, or it could be a refueling point for the diesels? An unused turntable at the end...? Might add a bit of shunting fun to things?:confused:
