Staging Decision

So after much playing around with the space, I've decided I'm going to go with the stub ended L-shaped staging.

Unfortunately, this inverts the direction of traffic flow so I'm going to have to readjust the design slightly or just build the yard and figure out everything else. The deciding factor was the last few days of moving some furniture pieces from the workshop on the other side up the basement stairs (which come down right into that corner). I had also had to take a door and my ladder down and up the stairs. With the refrigerator at the bottom of the stairs, I need as much space as possible in that corner to be able to swing and adjust. Having just the mockup of the helix base there made me realize that I'd have the real possibility of always knocking into it. With the staging, I'll have more room. Of course, I had thought of tearing down everything I had build and going with a simpler plan, something like I had read in MRH and the gentleman is building here. I'm not ready to go to that extreme, yet, but it is something I thought about.

Welcome to the my Conrail Model Railroad site. I will document the research, design, construction and operations of my N-scale model railroad based on Conrail's Ft. Wayne Line in Ohio.
