Hi Mark,

Only the 8"x8" part of the building will fit, and that will be very close to the backdrop (within a 1/2" or so). So there is no way the addition will fit the space.

Take care,
Rob.

Rob, would it be possible to flop the plan end for end so that the log dump is on the right side and the wharf is on the left. I want to eliminate the sector plate and have my staging run along the wall to the left. Thanks in advance.

Rob and Mark,

It strikes me that the slight angle of the track entering the scene and corresponding changes in track is a subtle but important improvement over the original design. You have a more economic use of space while preserving visual interest.

Rob, I hate to ask for more but could you add some one foot tick marks for measuring purposes. Thanks

Hi Mark,

The plan with a grid. The green lines are 12" squares, the grey lines are 1" squares:



Take care,
Rob.

Nice to see someone inspired by my scribblings! I am still struggling with variations of this plan.

There is a problem with the log dump which I struggle with: There is Little room for an A-frame or some other mechanism to get the logs off the cars - in particular as it has to be close to the turnout..

Hi Lennart,

I always loved your plans, and they have provided lots of inspiration for me over the years.

As for the log dump, I think there should be enough room for a simple jill poke to unload the logs. It could be attached to the trestle bents and could almost be parallel to the track that runs alongside the engine house.

Take care,
Rob.

Rob, thank you very much it will help locate buildings and track.

Lennart, I like your designs also. I too have been thinking about unloading methods as well, always looking for ideas.

Rob, could we make another tweak to the plan?
I would like to have the track on the left side where the watertower is to curve of to the toward the front corner to be able to connect a future module or layout.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Mark,

Just to be certain, you want the curved track to go thru where the warehouse is on the wharf now? What radius?

Take care,
Rob.

Rob, the back track with the watertank just shortening up the wharf to clear.
18 to 22' radius.
