Thanks for the interest, Gramps. I'm having a hard time envisioning where to put this runaround? Think you could elaborate on where to put it? Better yet, make a quick sketch over the plan. 🙂Because of the room you have, I would suggest another runaround on the top leg of the layout to avoid a loco having to push the cars back to the bottom leg. It would give you more of a point to point effect. I'm looking forward to the progress on this build, keep posting.
Thanks man, glad you like it. I'll continue to post photos, progress, projects, etc. in this thread. 😀Your track plan and benchwork look great (and your space, too!). I look forward to seeing your progress.
I think the staging yard at top is the most logical. There is a lot of track there that I think in the long run will be better served as a place to headend the engine and avoid the need for return loops. I have a shelf layout with passing sidings at each end that are runarounds and I just like the way the loco is always pulling the consist instead of pushing on the return trip and I think you will really prefer it especially with the space you have.Thanks for the interest, Gramps.

Maybe in the staging yard would be a good location? Changing out cars up there for a more point to point affect as you stated.
