This Part of the layout measure an around 2.50 meters by 1.5meters or an around 8.2 feet by 4.7 feet; track is only modified Peco code55 with switcmaster motors for turnouts. Control is by LENZ DCC
Port allen is the only full senicked part of the layout, next to it is the steam terminal and town which are "L" shaped with an overall 2.2 metersby 3 meters; track and some structures are on the way at town. Roundhouse and turntable with all the details are nearly complete.
A move come in 2010, and all the part you see will take place on a bigger project including a big yard and a future long run in a Appalachian like country. I have the fantastic chance to have a future room which measure 12.5meters by 10 meters.
Track for the yard is in preparation, because I now use only FASTRACK turnouts for the next contruction. In the album at Nscale .org you will seen the plan of the future yard. I will publish soon pictures of the first batch of finished turnouts.
The "Appalachian run "will feature an around the wall with peninsula design coming back and folding. Plan is on the progress, but it smelt like the late V&O with a main line and a secondary subdivision which run accross it. On the far end of the line will be erected a mine town. Full lenght of mainline between Port and the future mine town will reach a 70 meters development with a maximun 2.5% grade and 18 inch minimum radius curve.
