      Most definitely NOT an Amtrak fan!   Will only be a fan of the fire breathing steamers!

      Rooster, it takes a special sort to be an Amtrak fan. I understand, because it also takes a special sort to be a Penn Central fan like me.

      While waiting for the grass to grow (literally) I have started for formalize my track plan.   First up was to measure out the area for my empire.  I decided I wanted a minimum of 6 foot from the property lines, 8 foot from the house and 10 foot from the shed.  I plan to build a work bench on the layout side of the shed, so I allowed extra clearance in that area.   Drew the whole thing up in Sketchup.



      Next, using AnyRail I laid out the area and then put in the track that would represent the extents of the layout.  This is by far my plan, it just allows me to visualize the area I have to work in.  Minimum radius is 60", most curves are shown at 72" and the one around the tree is 96"


      Next up is to start making adjustments to the plan and adding in the details to come up with something I like.
