Hey All, I've found a layout design I can start with and extend as I can.

Here is the design that I have chosen.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/wlsbz0b1bnvx09l/dump_short8_300dpi.jpg?dl=0

This is a design by Lennart Elg, I am going to modify it slightly.
I'm going to make it 8' long by adding a switch and extending the water to make a small wharf area.

Your thoughts and comments are welcomed.

Go for it!

I read Lennart had a stroke last week, not sure how he's recovering.

Thanks Phillip and Louis, I did know Lennart was having health problems.

I have looked quite a few of lennart's designs over the years and have some saved for reference.

louis, your are correct in observing that this plan has lots of expansion potencial.

Keep the comments coming, more updates as things progress.

Mark looks like a good beginning. I hope to see more of it as time goes on. I too am looking for a good beginning section. A small town and yard.

Mark,

Definitely, this plan reads high on the potentiometer.

Do you anticipate keeping the track plan and changing everything else or just making a few changes?

Mike

Mike, only a slight change to the track plan and some building changes to fit what buildings I already have.

Guys,
To paraphrase Mark Twain, the rumors about my health are greatly exaggerated, I have not had a stroke.

The reason my sternwheeler thread fizzled out was extensive travel last year (Ecuador, Galapagos, Australia, New Zealand, Iceland..) and dealing with the death of a relative. But, as Douglas McArthur promised, "I shall return"..

Thanks for your concern, and it is nice to see my trackplans are useful to someone!

Lennart, thanks for stopping by glad you are doing well.

I've looked through your plans often to get ideas to use in my layout design, thanks for making them available.

Comments are always welcomed.

Do they make a On30 3 way switch were it all divides by the log dump?

Interesting small plan, especially for modules.

We'll try this again.



In this plan there isn't a 3 way switch.

While waiting on my wood supplies for bench work, I'm going to be working on the tractor repair shed by Sierra West. Pictures to follow as work continues.
