    Well I bought the model power twin oil tanks set and I must say the directions are backwards as I should’ve put stairs and handrail together first and not after instructions say assemble whole unit then put these ittiy bitty stair rails inbewteen both structures. Who does that but none the less after a week of trying to get them on I finally got them on today and I must say this little kit is pretty impressive. I hope you enjoy and next to put together is the metro power kit that came in mail today

    Default Power plant kit

    Well I finished the power plant and it took a couple days as my attention span short circuited and took a break. But none the less she is finished and looks very impressive. Checkout the picks and I hope you enjoy

    Looks good! Given your Nom-de-Rail, I presume that this is a modern generating plant, and that the structure just before the stack is the electro-static precipitator,for removing particulate matter from the emissions. As an industrial electrician, I've worked on several retro-fits on existing coal fired plants in the 1970s.

    Yes I’m more of a modern modeler I’m sorry I can’t help it. But what was it like working like in one of those?

    LOUD. With 50 guys welding anodes, and another 50 or so running conduits and pulling wire. Aside from that, in the summer it was miserably hot inside that building, and in the winter - Kansas - wind chills were sometimes -50°. Good times.

    I like the right - more track - less waisted aisle

    I'm with Scotian, the second plan seems more organised and makes better use of the space available.

    I favor the second option, but both have the same "choke point" where the aisle splits three ways, just below and to the right of the couch. I think with the second option you can improve things there by slightly shortening the peninsulas that create this choke point, maybe 4" to 6" shorter each, and also plan on cutting the corners off at an angle or rounding them. In particular the peninsula that comes up from the bottom and ends at the aisle in front of the couch could be shortened in favor of foot space at the couch.

    Is the couch planned to be able to shove back under the layout for when you need access? Or do you just climb on top of the couch?

    Yes I’m leaning towards the second option or the one on right. My wife likes that idea also so the consensus will win. I have started drawing another one and will make a bigger model of it in the next day or two. I noticed the choke point also and to make the aisle all 3 feet I took off a foot down the island that comes in near the door that has coal silos on it and took off a half foot on the island beside the couch so it extends only a foot and half passed the couch now. Now the choke point is not so small and adds to foot print as you stated. I like the squares corner as I have plans for them 1) as a workbench at end of island with coal silos 2) plan to raise the two purple corners up to have the coal conveyors coming from them to the coal silos and make mountains or hills out of the space.

    As far as foot space I think I accomplished what you said and the couch will slide up against the layout and towards the island that stops in front of if any repairs or just need to access the layout. Here are a few pictures of the first plan with L shaped couch and the new drawing with updated space and walkways and added island. Any suggestions welcome and I hope you enjoy

    Well as I stated in previous post here’s a bigger drawing of the plan I have on poster board. I will fill it in in next day or two and update with new photo but here’s first picture of drawing hope you can see it now. Every 3 squares is a foot to scale

    Well did a little kit shopping over the last week and all this showed up at the door today. I’ll start building these next week as I’m getting ready to go to ATL to watch the Crimson Tide play Roll Tide Roll.

    Default Update from last post

    Well I’m not in my house yet as I might be month and half two months out from completion. Well since I’ve had plenty of time to think about my layout and wonder if this will work or this plan is best. I have come up with a new layout plan which gives me 3 pinensulas and a workbench on the end of the longest one that allows me to see the whole layout from one spot in the room and work at the same time. The plan still has 3 levels with a clearance of 2.5” between each level and the run/rise between each is 11 feet for a grade of 1.89%. Which I think will work great and all trains shouldn’t have a problem climbing to each level. I’ve been trying to come up with a plan. I have drawn up A plan to some extent but I think it’s true to scale and if you have any ideas please throw them my way. As they are welcome and will be considered. Hope you enjoy the pics of the layout drawing..
