Recommended Posts

die Beschreibung des Layout ist in Englisch, sorry, zu hart, um manuell übersetzen. Ich füge eine Zip mit dem Layout zu diesem Eintrag


Here it is, the central module of my Colorado Midlands Layout.

Under the bottom layer, there are 4 trains hidden in storage.  Behind the mountain is a switchblock that controls the switches below the upper track. 

Below Default Layer (Train Storage)


SW1    0  track 1        1  track 2

SW2    0  track 3         1 Track 4

SW3    0 track 3/4       1  track 1/2

The hidden yard has be eliminated, and simplified.  Switches for this level are marked HYS.  Destinations are indicated for each position.  

FPR is Frying Pan River (Marked as such on upper level)  Outer is the outer track from by the mountain/   Inner is the inner track from same.

Water is the exit close to the water tower.  Snow Mass is the Mountain
