Need suggestions for a Gap in DC rail

897 Views 8 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Dennis461
Thinking about cutting a gap in new layout for DC blocks and was just about to cut a gap directly above uncoupling ramp (to get a double header motive power coupled up or split.

Or should the gap be at A or B in picture?
(I realize I can always change it later.)

If it is your intent to have the turntable as a block 'T'
then you would have a gap where you have a red line.
I'm not sure that I would bother creating such a short block there - unless the image is misleading and there's actually enough room to park an engine or two there on a ready track. Then you might want to have a dead block to park an engine.

The turntable itself will be it's own block of course.
