Hey guys,

I finished up my layout plan. It's in HO, and takes place during Fall, in West Virginia, during the transition period. I have devised a plan to look real, yet provide some fun operations, on the maximum space I have(4 x 8). It serves 3 industries, with a backdrop in the middle. The coal mine will be in the mountainous scene, with some nice rolling hills, graduating to a large mountain, with some nice fall colors scattered about. The more or less "Industrial" area will have streets and a small hill, along with a small powerplan(Northern Light and Power), along with a warehouse, which will be two lakeview warehouses kitbashed an put to be one. The pink is the parking areas, and the gray are the roads. For the warehouse, I have included two optional roads, or even both. I'd like some help on whether to use one of two(which one) or both. Final Critiques would be nice.

Nice plan, only thing I'd suggest is to add some sort of interchange track going off one end of the layout. That'd make it a little more fun to operate. and give it a connection to the rest of the world.

Yeah Spit, good plan but I have to agree with the Hawk. It needs some connection to the outside world. Might I suggest the Lt bottom corner. Drop in a rt hand #4 and have the track "extend" to the edge.
