I thought I would kick off the blog for 2013 with what has been the most requested piece of information people have asked for...a trackplan of the layout. Below is the basic plan. Not every siding and yard track is shown. Some are but most are not.

I am not really into drawing intricate detailed plans. I like to just build as I go. At some point I will refine this plan to accurately reflect each track.And as it is, not every mainline shown is in exactly the correct position relative to the wall for fascia. It gives you a pretty good idea of how things are laid out though.

Please note that the branch up to north Stratford is not shown at all. this would be over top part of the staging, through the wall and then above Groveton and parts of Gilman. This will require a separate drawing so as not to block and confuse the drawing relative to the lower tracks below this shelf.

This plan was drawn using Empire Express software for the Macintosh, a program I have had for close to 20 years. I would suggest right-clicking on image to open it in a new tab or window, and then you should be able to zoom in. Or you could save it to your desktop and open with your favorite image viewing software (I couldn't figure out how to make blogspot show the image larger right here without diminishing the quality). Enjoy!
