It's based off of a John Armstrong plan in MR book "The Classic Layout Designs of John Armstrong". It's the PRR Schuylkill Division plan. I modified it by mirror imaging it and then extending the upper left lobe out by approximately 3ft.. My dad wants to "Just run trains". I would like to get into more of the switching/operational aspect of the hobby. Although i do enjoy a good run around the layout every once in a while.That Pennsy plan is very nice. Which John Armstrong plan is it from and what book can I find the plan in?
On sectional track, I found you have to select the track peice you want to lay every time you want to lay a new peice, BUT I've NEVER been able to get the 1st peice to stay, thus why i used the flex track tool in the 1st place, lol.I've tried laying out the track. I place one piece of track and go to place the next one and the original piece moves....lol...It's like possessed or something...lol
