Good afternoon,
Tim Kelley here. I live in Palatine, Illinois which is in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. I need an Anyrail tutor to help me get my layout design finished. I have watched plenty of Anyrail youtube videos and some things I'm just not getting. My layout certainly isn't complex. If you know your way around AnyRail and you are somewhere in the Chicago metro area, please contact me. I'm willing to pay your for your expertise!


Hi Tim! Welcome here.

Alternatively, you can perhaps post here what you have as your plan so far. If it's not too complex or too much work, I'm sure people will help you. What you need to post is the AnyRail file, so the file with extension ".any".

As David has said, there's no harm in posting your .any file here and explain what it is that you're trying to do.  Also take a sentence or two to describe what you want the layout for - it is freight switching, or perhaps mostly scenic with longer runs, etc.   Someone may be able to come up with some simple suggestions that help.
