Chip, I am upset that you didn't publish this earlier. I just set up (well, I am setting up) a layout from an old Kalmbach book which is a simpler version of yours.
You have more yard than I want or need, and I wanted a turntable. Both of those could be adapted to yours. All I wanted was an Inglenook game.
What I really like is the twice around. The trade off is backing into the yard at the end of the run. A fair trade.
If this doesn't win or place, I REALLY want to see what wins.
I put in the second runaround at the top so that you have the choice to drive head in. (Or leave the yard to the east instead of west.)
