R.J.'s layout pictures

 

Here are some pictures of R.J.'s layout. It is a long oval that runs east west.


Here we are starting at the Southwest corner, the track  has just  come around the shed and is heading  East. A passing siding begins near the signal bridge.

Now we have continued East to the end of the shed. The main line jogs to the right (South)

Image

We are now East of the jog in the mainline, still headed due East.  The tracks in the foreground center are part of the inner loop. In the distance you can see the switchyard.

Image

Here's a slightly different angle (the mainline is off to the right). This shows the new reversing connection from the inner loop to the Northern center of the main line. 

Image

Here's a picture from the SouthWestern end of the layout, looking back at the way we just came. Notice the convenient viewing area complete with seating! (Where's the beer keg RJ?)

Now after hitting the East end of the layout, the track turns back to the West. This picture is looking from South to North at about the middle of the layout, and you can also see the electronics cabinet. 

The track in the foreground is the main line. The first track behind the cabinet is the coal spur. The very furthest track is the trolley line. 

Image

As we continue East, we come to the tracks that allow crossing over to the inner loop. This picture is looking back East, you can see the electronics cabinet at the right rear. 

Image

And finally, continuing East, we come to the shed again, now on the North side. As the track passes the shed, it curves around South to complete our trip. Thanks RJ!
