I decided on a two level track plan. The Lower Level would be Owen Sound, the upper Park Head to Wiarton and a staging area. If you know the line, you will note that I left out the towns of Shallow Lake and Ben Allen between Owen Sound and Park Head. You will also notice that the towns of Hepworth and Clavering are missing between Park Head and Wiarton. This is because of space limitations. But it does not mean that the layout will lose out in the majority of prototype operation which occurred at the 3 key points I have chosen to model. The two levels were to be linked together with a 42″ radius helix. As the building of the layout has progressed, the 42″ had to be reconsidered and downsized to 38″ radius.
As can be seen, it is a challenging undertaking. I have built only a couple of layouts in the past, one Flyer and one HO. I also have built two module sets and corners for participation in the S Scale Workshop of which I am a member. This however is a bit daunting.
