    Default fun yard planning

    Hi all,

    I just found some free time and I came up with yard design (using railmodeller pro). would love to know your thoughts on this , whether it can be built in practice and how efficiently can this be run ? I want to automate as much of this as possible using jmri.

    let me know

    You've been driving in those euro style roundabouts too long . . . . . .

    I tried to add up the cost of all those turnouts but I got dizzy.
