this layout is just getting started in V4

layout1.thumb.jpg.0d897acfa02df01f797f0c4f7089f3d7.jpg

This is the parking level, and serves to store trains.

Layout3.thumb.jpg.e6c00058981de3416e902a8afef641dc.jpg

This is the only visible controller on parking level as other switches are automatic.

closeup of track.  This is a Custom texture, based on Union Pacific trackage in 1869.  Track is Iron (Not Steel) and so is

brown.  4 spikes per tie with no tie plates.

Hi Curtis

Impressive........

I noticed you've got a similar problem in MBS as I would have here in New Zealand......not much native running gear/facilities for our real living area in the catalogue. I don't mind since I only moved here some 22years ago and the layouts I'm creating are all based on Germany memories, besides NZ hasen't got much of railway anyway. But for you the choices are pretty clearly arranged. I'm guessing you will look into 3D model building?

Cheers

Tom

Likewise here. But I feel there is a lot of good advice from some of the "pro's" in here that might help save some learning time. Unfortunately mostly in German. But as I said many folks here can do English as well. So if you ask a question you will get answers.

Cheers

Tom

using a cube (Quader) Primitive for the walls worked nice.

I decided to re-lable some locomotives.

Hi,

I like to follow your conversation in english from good old Germany.
In 2005 I was in Atlanta for work and bought that train.
Now your similar photo and I recognised, they sold it to me with the missing front light.

cheers

Lothar

Have added the second or Hidden Yard Level. 

 HY1.thumb.jpg.0c1815b6a3b7c64da4fb01399f6c820b.jpg

This level goes on top of the parking level, and this view is from the mouth of the tunnel as it enters the Hidden Yard.

HY2.thumb.jpg.2ff665c1f9efe5dc4bc742f3bacf8b0b.jpg

Looking back at the tunnel and the return track.  the Semaphore sign is one sided (cannot be seen from other side)

HY3.thumb.jpg.ce57aa18d8ab02b02411114184cfb387.jpg

headed towards the 5 track diagonal section

HY4.thumb.jpg.ede952db0a94d2fa49fa7e122b6abe64.jpg

5 track diagonal ahead with switches

HY5.thumb.jpg.3d3fb6ac768a3683db16c13d60dd4435.jpg

The five track Diagonal section.  The Green at the top is a cover for the level

HY6.thumb.jpg.defd841342f2a679e447eed10004168d.jpg

End of 5 track section and beginning of approach to East Basalt.   Yes fmkberlin, those are your christmas lights behind the grate.

HY7.thumb.jpg.4d85ba72dd508ac06f4e1cf1d8d0777d.jpg

The whole layout at this point is enclosed in a box.  Walls are Primitive Square, and next level will go on top and be much 

bigger.

Hallo @Curt84328,

das video Deiner Anlage sieht schonmal vielversprechend aus. Wenn es oben so weiter geht wie auf den unteren Ebenen, wird dass eine super Anlage.

Google translation

the video of your system looks promising. If it goes on as above as on the lower levels, that will be a great investment.

Viele Grüße

many Greetings

This will be the last report for a while.  I am working on the Main Lower level now, around the area of Basalt.   Work goes very slow on this level, with 20cm x 70cm being average for a day.

it's hard to see, but the ground slopes gently down from the bottom edge of the picture to the tunnel.  14mm to 12mm.

Roter Brummer, I love your Gras Endlos textur.
