    Good point! It looks as though the Tourist Train gets to the main station either by reversing on the main line or continuing around the main line route.

    So far as the area on the left, I suggest just leaving it countryside. That could be cropland, pasture, or meadows and forest, depending on the area you want to model.

    Interesting track plan. I'm not sure whether I understand your dilemma. At any rate, were it my plan I would flip it (for example, right over left). This allows trains on your double track main...
