1 or 2 but 2 is preferable.

I hate to fill this up with questions, but do you have a preference for structure make, and what do you have on hand for structures to use with the modules?

Structure-wise it doesn't matter what I have. I'm looking for a good layout. If I have to, I'll buy stuff.

Okie-doke. Did the last plan come out alright for your wants? Also, what mods would you prefer to be done for it?

The station yard tracks on the last submission can be truncated if needed/wanted to be solely on one module.

Here is the thing. I have a plan that I'd already come up with. It's somewhat similar to what you guys are doing (it's hard to do too much more with the small area). What I'm looking for is creative ways to use the space. Arseny's thought about a freight yard on the "flat" module is the kind of creative thinking I'm looking for. Specifically because that freight yard can be made to be incorporated and look cohesive with the station elements on the front module.

That is a really small area. I have no good thought.

my first try

If we had the right freight cars, you can build one like this. But smaller :wink:

Edit: I found a smaller one near Winnipeg.

But there were no space for the elevator on your small layout. :wall:

Guys, the shell goes to Arseny. It was his big yard comment that gave me the out of the box thinking I needed. This led me to start thinking about tracks on the "clean" module fitting with structures on the sceniced module thus allowing for more interesting track plans. Arseny, I'll let you know when I get it produced and sent. Thanks all!

MacG, that second one is very interesting. I guess they use the loop for parking cars.
