Very good points, thanks Magic. I will play some more in Anyrail, but my fear is that adding another will give too much of a figure 8 for my taste. Right now, the concept is to use the main reverse loop to 'return' to the yard head first. The reverse there would be the turntable for the outbound head first trip.A very good point about the reverse loop.
If you have one reverse loop you really need two so
you can reverse back to the original direction.
You have two loops but they go the same way, no way to reverse
back to the original direction.
Going counter clockwise you can reverse to clockwise on either loop
but can't reverse to CCW again.
Going CW you can't reverse at all.
