I've spent the last year working from prototype data, maps and Google Earth, trying to find a nice, simple switching layout for the 6-foot by 14-inch shadow box I have in my room. While I have not successfully found a prototype, what I have here is based on a few different prototypes. The layout is based on one of the many branch lines that used to extend from the city of Manchester NH. It's the end of the line and serves a Grocery Distribution warehouse as well as another warehouse. It also serves a team track with room for up to 3 50' cars. The runaround loop was put in when the line west of here was abandoned in the late 1960's. Simply put, Trains arrive from the east, emerging from the thick over growth and the 393 Bypass. The local, usually a NW-2, GP7 or 9 comes in with five to six cars, runs around it's train and and spots the buggy (B&M for caboose) on the drill track and starts switching out the two warehouses and team track, using the drill track (track north of the warehouses) as a set out track to assemble the train heading back to Manchester. It's simple, based on prototype and Lance Mindheim style of track plans. One track serves multiple customers or spots. A Cassette is utilized at the left of the layout, past 393 and also connects with another 6-foot shadow box that will based on Manchester Yard as it looked in the 1970's to 1980's. Let me know your thoughts, this track plan has given me the most interest in the last year and I'm hoping to start laying track soon. Thanks in advance.
