Quote from: Mike from CT on October 25, 2012, 02:35:30 AMI can't leave well enough alone.... One important change - I reversed the crossover to the left of Black Diamond Junction (highlighted in red area). That one's important, because it allows trains passing on the main to pass without running through the yard.I left in the connection between the drill track and the passing side for some flexibility, but that short section of green track and turnout connecting it to the passing siding really isn't necessary for operations.Also, although it may take a bit more track re-aligning than I gave it, I added a second depot on the line. It's be nice for any passenger service to have more than one stop to make.One change I didn't make, but you might want to check, is placing the oil tanks between the two tracks. I'd think both tracks would be on one side of the tanks, possibly with the oil *truck* loading facilities on the other (street) side of the tanks.That said and done, I think you'll have a layout that'll give you plenty of operating pleasure - and let you share the operations with a friend or two.I expect pictures of the construction progress....
