That's pretty amazing for a first draft.

The station is 12" x 5". The loading dock is 13" x 9". Grain silo is 9" x 7". Brew house is 10.5" x 7".

Hi Kevin,

Obviously I underestimated the size of your structures, they really didn't look that big in the photos. Anyway, I had to adjust the plan to compensate for their increased size, and move things around a bit. I also had to combine the two other structures I added into a single building serving dual purposes, and with two loading doors.

Here's the 2nd draft of the design:



Take care,
Rob.

Hi Jeff,

I haven't forgotten about your design, I am just having trouble coming up with a mainline that I like. I have been trying a few configurations since you posted the bench work dimensions, but I am not happy enough with any of them to call it a first draft.

Take care,
Rob.

Rob,
Trust me, I'm not chomping at the bit waiting for a design. I am sure you have a few other things going on in your life. I just appreciate that you are willing to take time out of your life to try and help me with my layout.
Jeff

Hi Rob,

One last request. Is it possible in your software to overlay the part number on the actual piece? If not that's fine, you've done an amazing job and I'm truly thankful.

Hi Kevin,

Here's the plan with the part number (without the "Ka-" prefix) overlay.



Take care,
Rob.

Rob: I've borrowed your rendition on page 5 from August 27 and hope to make some modifications for my N layout design. Thanks for your efforts. I especially like the staging feature so I can park some decent sized trains as well as have easy access for removing or adding rolling stock to the mix for ops sessions.

Rob,

I was wondering if you had time to develop a switching layout for me. You previously did an On30 design for me that was coastal based but changes to my life have caused me to not have the space needed for that layout (son moved home so need the garage space).

The space available is 12'x10' L-shaped shelf in a corner, 12' wall along top and 10' on right, 2' wide. I am looking for a switching layout that will give me a nice relaxing hour or more to switch. I'm a big fan of the Milwaukee Road and aisde from a small amount of On30, most of my equipment is MILW HO scale stuff.

I'l like to feed the layout from a 5' long cassette at the end of the 10' wall. I am really looking for something I can detail to the nines, mid-60s era midwest Milwaukee Road, 18" min radius, #5 turnouts. I stink at layout design hence my request. If you have the time to come up with something I'd appreciate it. You have a lot of leeway and I'll be interested to see what you come up with.

Hopefully this layout will be an interim measure. My wife and I are considering building a standalone 1-car garage with upstairs apartment for my son, which will enable me to get a full 14'x22' space for a layout in about 18 months. At that point I am going to model the Lancaster and Chester Railroad in the upstate of SC. It's a regional line that runs from Lancaster, SC to Chester SC handling about 14,000 cars a year, and interchanges with CSX and NS. Not bad for a small regional.

Hi John,

Sorry, but I haven't been able to do any design work in over a month now. Both my parents were sick for the last few months and that had become a priority for me. My father ended up having a bad heart attack about a week before Christmas, and all of my free time has been consumed with looking after him since then. He was discharged from the hospital four days ago, but is not yet well enough to look after himself, nor is my mother capable. I also have 7 people that I have already asked for help, so I have to do that design work before I would consider taking on anything new.

Thanks for understanding,
Rob.
