    Thanks, guys. Here's a trackplan that I sketched out to give a clearer idea of the plan:

      I like it, nice and simple.. allows for continuous running and switching. You could actually have two consists running continuously in opposite directions at the same time as long as you kept track of where the points are aligned on the switches at the swing-gate.

      Looking forward to much more!

          Nice improvement over the other idea. You must of had your thinking cap on.

          I really like it. :up:

            Hi, guys. It's been a while since I posted an update, so thought I would do so. All track is wired up now, so I'm running trains again! Woohoo!

            Also, I've painted the background in as shown in the photos below. It's a simple, two color background suggesting distant trees. Very little of it will actually be visible because of the foreground trees which are planned, but what will show I wanted to keep simple so as not to distract from the foreground. The unpainted blue areas below the background will be covered with land masses, so I didn't bother painting them - too, it reminds me where I have the land masses planned for. There are 4 pics below, each taken from the 4 corners of the walk-in area.

            This first shot shows the town of Little Creek on the far wall. In the foreground, you can see the peninsula which will have the sawmill area on it.



            This next shot again shows the town of Little Creek off the left there, and the sawmill area.



            This shot shows what will be the logging area in the far corner with a spar tree.



            This last shot shows what will be the mining area in the far corner.



            Having the background in has really helped me to visualize how the landforms will eventually be. Now I need to get busy on them!

              Eddie,

              The Layout looks great, love all the bridges they will make great photo settings.

                        Very nice Eddie. All these bridges add a lot to the scenes, and your backdrop choice is logical if you plan to hide most of it with trees. I've come to the idea that in all cases, it's always good (except if you are a very talented 2D to 3D blender as Tim is, for instance) to have some trees hide the junction between the backdrop and the scenery. In real life, trees play very often this role of separator between the close and the more distant landscape.

                        Nice to see the trains are running, too. Hope to see more of your great work in the forthcoming months.

                            Eddie. Those bridges are super. Looks like the layout is really going to have some dramatic scenes.

                              Great progress, Eddie. I like your track plan, and your trestle work is terrific! I see a large waterfall is in the plans. Have you been thinking of a construction technique for that?
