David, here's your plan, as you will see, I have made it easy to see the tracks by making three versions. It is a 2 level plan and a lot of scope for scenery.

For those interested, here is a full size plan of one of my 0n30 huts

Shamus,

Thanx for the layout plan! I'm a little slow this morning but could you explain what does the red track represent? Do you think there is enough room for a small engine facility? I want to model a small engine shed and have a water tank and coaling area.
I had thought on having an interchange with a Standard RR and a small station & engine shed at one end of the layout and have a switchback leading to the resort at the other end which would only be only a false front representing the resort. I was afraid that I woun't have the room for this. What do you think?

Also, THANK YOU for the plans for your huts!

THANX AGAIN
DAVID

Loco and water tower plus coal bottom right.
As for interchange tracks, could be either end.

Shamus,

Again it's me with more questions! Where in the world do you get your layout idea's/insperations from! Your layout seems so natural/real! I've showed my wife pics of your layout and all she can say is "WOW" !
Some of the layouts and club modules around here look like a 2 year old built them compaired to yours. You got any advice to share on how I could possible get my little shelf layout started on the right track... The Shamus track!

SEE YA
DAVID
