G'day Zec,

Thanks for the feedback :)

What if I made the middleloop to a slaughterhouse/meatpacking company, thus giving the cattle dock...

...I will definatly be extending the headshunt, that was a good idea too :)

...as for the loco facilities, it was designed that one loco could be serviced without getting in the way of another loco which might need turning. I am also trying to keep that curve as free as possible to allow for a cutting and scenery :)

Cheers
Stevo

...Rail 'n' Thusiast are getting some more C19s in and Branchline have some HOn3 track, so it looks like this one might go ahead :)

Cheers

Just a thought, if you can make the space, move the turntable closer to the passenger road (or put it on the end of the headshunt), and then have the timer loading area on the goods yard headshunt. This will put the timber industry outside of the town itself :) Will also make shunting more interesting IMO. Note, try to make sure you have room to run a loco around without going onto the turntable (for either yard). Can make it for only the shorter locos mind (e.g. designed for earlier built locos, later ones need the turntable aligned to shunt).

G'day Zec,

I can spare literally no room, thats wall to wall to wall to door frame... I don't see a problem with a turntable on the end of a headshunt. One layout I've seen didn't even have a headshunt, all the roads just met up at the turntable... and that wasn't with limited space :P

Cheers
Stevo
