I've got the flu. Again. Don't seem to be able to get a weekend without being sick. Its the price you pay for having children. Today we are going to test the track plan!
All the track issues were fixed as I did these switching exercises. Sometimes the tracks are not connected properly, so this debugging gets them out of the way. I like the track plan so far, so no more changes need to be made at this time.
1. On industrial layouts, make sidings long enough to put in derails, fences and other security devices.
2. Careful planning is needed when building trains for the facing siding as you have to run-around to set these cars out.
3. This switching layout not only has a customer destination, but each destination has specific spotting locations as well. So a company like Skretting can have 4-5 placement positions for a car.
