Greetings.!

Basically this is going to be a text record of the construction of the above layout. Nothing new there - you can find numerous sites on the internet that do exactly the same thing.

.

At this point, I think I will keep track of construction progress as journal type entries by date worked on. We'll see how it goes.

.

This is a long term project that I envision sharing with whoever is interested enough to periodically stop back

and check it's progress.

Layout Status:

Journal Entry # 1 - Background  "How this came about."

Atlas' popular layout planning program, the Right Track Software Version 8 and 10, are available as a FREE DOWNLOAD.  Right Track Freeware is a layout planning program for the PC (Windows only), and allows you to design your dream layout using electronic templates.

.

As an interesting side note, I recently ran across a web site devoted to informational material for both the beginning and advanced model railroader. Tons of information (no pictures though) from designing your layout, to planning for realistic operation. Check out this  Layout Design Primer.
