A double-tracked oval
provides access to the staging, the branch junction, and a scenic location for model railfanning through Twin Bridges. It's
also great for display and casual fun-running. The connection to staging is via a wye for easy turning of staged consists
Overall, the design is somewhat less dense than Dan Murdock's
original concept, but with the slightly larger space, there was room to spread things out a bit. One of the things Rick's
clients wanted that I was also excited about was the metal fabricator in the center section between the Twin Bridges and the
Hilyard sections. I called this area Middleton in my design (OK, a little less than original) and used a number of Walthers
models in the plan.
