Re: Layouts and Modules
All I can say is, thank the good Lord for hollow-core doors- they're the N scaler's best friends when it comes to layout building. True, my ArkLaTex Sub is a simple loop, but with staging on the back, the local comes out one side, does its work, and goes off-stage the other side, leaving the switch crew to od its work- in this case, the Baldwin switcher at the paper mill. Also, the MP local can come into town, drop off & pick up interchange, and head back out on its interchange track. Meanwhile, the local running the opposite direction comes in, does its work, and leaves.
Not every stretch of track is as busy as the BNSF Transcon main- lots of lines don't see quite that much traffic. Which is why I model a freelalce secondary line.
