    I just completed my small 12x2 foot layout last week. There is still plenty of touch up and tweaking that needs to be completed, but at least the majority is now complete. The first picture is the 4 track staging yard. The second is the 2 track classification yard.

    Sweet looking yards mgilger. Although your railroad crossing sign seems ever so slightly out of scale.

    PRSL Yard Updates

    1. Here are the staging yards that caused me to tear apart 70% of my existing layout to make room for. It has 9 tracks and holds (212) 40’ freight cars. I added a scultamold rock face to separate the north and south end yards and make it look semi-sceniced. Overhead/under shelf LED lighting was added for the operator’s benefit.

    This will enable our operating group to run a complete 1950s Pennsylvania-Reading Seashore Lines freight schedule.

    2.) Camden Pavonia Yard (9 tracks; 123 cars) Update: Here is the current state of the on-line Pavonia Yard. The city of Camden has been filled in and a tree background added since the last update (post #149 Dec 7, 2014). The new staging yards remove a lot of activity from here and should give the yard crew a fighting chance to keep the rest of the layout humming.

    3) The marshalling yard at Woodbury Junction has remained as it was but should get additional work since the new Salem local (WY50,51) will make its protypical turn to here from the south staging yard.

    Great set of ideas on this thread. I am building a new 8x14 train shed. Here is what my current plan looks like. I probably have too much yard for the amount of layout, but I figure it can grow or shrink a little as I continue to refine the concept.

    That's OK. You're a Washingtonian; the other forumites are accustomed to us doing odd stuff now and then.

    Looks good! May I suggest that you isolate the "Caboose Track" and wire it as a programming track. And extend it almost to the turntable.

    Thanks, Gordon. I considered that, but a buddy of mine recommended against it. I'm not sure whether I will do it or not. It seems logical, but...

    I only mention it because I didn't do that - and wish I had.

    I assumed you were going DCC, which was quite presumptuous. But if so, the system you use may determine whether this is a good idea. My Z21 system would handle it, with the programming track able to be part of the main layout and trains would continue to run without hesitation at the transition. I don't know whether other systems do this, also.
    Cheers!

    I will be using Digitrax DCC for my railroad empire. My friend Tyler has a simple switch on the fascia to flip from programming track to working track (also Digitrax). I think the reason he decided not to use it is because he uses JMRI to program all his locomotives. It is easy enough to put into the layout at the beginning. Thanks again for the suggestion.
