New Yard

As of 2009, the layout included two eight-foot modules which make up a yard, modules 1 and 18 (see existing layout map).  Problems were that the existing modules 1 and 18 were too heavy and bulky, and it was difficult getting trains into and out of theyard.  Two changes were proposed: (1) to build a new yard to extend as a peninsula into the center of the layout area and (2) to rebuild the old yard as a switching district.  The latter would involve rebuilding the physical modules 1 and 18 into a more light weight form, as shown in the following track plan.


Dennis White took responsibility for building the new yard modules.
