I read the topic on tt-board where you guys are unhappy with the feedback from the "Amis" and decided to just continue the conversation over there. I'm glad you're posting progress here. Even though I'm somewhat terrible at prototypical rail plans or other details (structures, track spacing, etc.) I enjoy following the conversation and development of the plan / layouts. I can do it on tt-b but google translate ruins a lot of the details.

I haven't found a prototypical plan, but I'm reworking the layout.

@ConducTTor: I'm post the process here. But it is for me easier to discuss in my language, when there are guys with more background informations.

I don't know what it is like in America.
But on single track lines in Germany the station building is prototypically placed at the siding (for instance in Ortrand and in Lampertswalde). Passenger trains stopping there use the siding, so the main track is clear for other trains.

Can anybody tell if it's similar in America?

Here is an example I found that is a bit similar to your station. It's Glennwood Springs Colorado. The passenger station is located between the main line and one of the sidings. It's the longest pink rectangle. You can get more info here http://www.ghostdepot.com/rg/mainline/t ... enwood.htm

The station has changed over time you may need to do a little more research depending on what year you're modeling.

In Glennwood Springs is only one siding at the station. The line behind the station is a wall ;)

I haven't been able to find exactly when the rail plan changed and they added the wall.....

I think, the wall was neccessary from the beginning on—because of topographic reasons.

The only structure between tracks, that I can find, is the coal chute.

Hmmm. So you mean the rest of tracks are on the other side of the wall?

No, there's the town on the other side of the wall. The wall is neccessary because the town is on a higher level.

As I said, the only structure between tracks is the coal chute. The passenger station is at the right end of the map.
