My philosophy is that a track plan is ALWAYS DYNAMIC. It can change at any time. Many folks design their layout and once its on paper the way that they want it...it is set in stone. My thought is that it can change at any time.
So far I like what I have, but I really want to make some changes now that I know so much about the industries. There are some additions that I need to make for NMRA Achievement Program areas as well. Let's get started!
NMRA's AP Civil requirements let me construct a crossing as one of three trackwork items. I had these installed once before, but yanked them out. I've decided that since I've hand laid crossing before and these are not in the way of regular operating, that i'll put them back and and scratch build them. There are two...you build the first one, then you build the second one the CORRECT way and have it evaluated! Wiring and demonstrating the operation of a crossing is also an item in NMRA AP Electrical, so we'll knock it out, too!
Enough for today!
