The ability to keep two trains in constant motion was desired, along
support of passenger equipment requiring at least 24” radius curves. By siting the industrial spurs reaching into the
interior, I was able to make use of space inside the ovals. And by locating the yard along the outside of the ovals, it could
be a little longer.
To squeeze the absolute most out of the
space while still retaining at least a little buffer to the outside edge, the track-to-track spacing of the straight body
tracks in the yard was reduced to 2”.
already built benchwork or have left things open for creative alternatives, I’d like to help with your track planning
project, so contact me today.
