Trying to remember how to post pics after optimizing. If successful , you'll see the revised "scenery plan" as the track plan itself is unchanged.

What may not be so obvious is that as you move away from the waterline, everything goes up hill. So the road in the top left corner comes downhill from the town to the pier The Mills in the lower left corner cascade down the hillside as the stream comes out of the hills. The top right area was redrawn to add the "slums' area on the hill above the port.

nope, even after rereading the directions again, still not getting it right, It was optimized at 400 ppi. Is it spaces in the name?

David,

I see two things that are causing the problem. In the last img bracket, you need to put a back slash "\" right after the opening square bracket.

The second thing is that you have used parentheses in the name of your file "(1)". Use only letters and numbers in naming your files. Any type of punctuation marks (except an under score) cause problems.

Bruce, don't you mean forward slash ('/)? That's how I always do it.

Getting rid of the (1) cured it. and it was a forward slash / that worked. I was obviously able to make the corrections to the original post. Thanks guys!

There are about 70 structures represented here.

The \ is above the enter key and you have a great track plan.

Here's a link to my latest project of combining the Scale Model Masterpieces/Thomas Yorke, Rubbles Depot and Stone Depot all under one roof. Both are currently marketed by Dr Ben's Consortium.

If you haven't seen my Rubbles Depot Kit Mingle thread, here's quick photo of progress so far. The third floor will have a round landing to walk around, and observe the harbor below.





I've been painting a few plastic buildings for the town on the hill just before the Rubles kit came in. Noting completed but it's all going in the right direction.





I also acquired a "Gold Edition" (interior lighting) of the Toadsuck Canning kit off of Ebay. Only one other bidder. Picked it up for $189.00

I found this stuff at Hobby Lobby for duplicating items. It has the consistency of rubber fishing lure worms I made a few copies of some castings to see how it well it works. Seems to pickup the detail fairly well, but not as good as silicone. Likely would have gotten better results with Hydrocal rather than the dental stone that I poured in.



Here's the latest addition for the North Coast fleet. a Steam launch and a gas launch for tourist travel, and island hopping.

David, somehow I drifted out into the lake the past year or so. I made it back to shore just in time to catch up. The layout design sure has a lot of potential for operation.

Iím also looking forward to the work on Rubbles Double Depot project.

If you or others see operation failures, I am still open to change. There is no permanent trackwork in place yet. It has been mostly planning, mural painting and making buildings thus far. Still thinking about switch machine wiring, control panels etc.

There will be hidden passing tracks under the left and top areas. Also a staging area off to the right, beyond the staircase is under consideration.

Will you have a removable car float? If so, you might want a facing point track or two somewhere near it, so you can pull the inbound cars and load the outbound cars without going back to the yard and running around twice (its two storage tracks face the wrong way). The pier track might do, if it had few or no cars spotted at its industries. Not relevant if it's not an interchange point.

The intent is to indicate that a car float does exist. It' simply not in port. It is illusion though, as I never intent to a actually make a car float or barge. It does the service of an interchange and will feature the Bar Mills ferry dock to that purpose.

Your point is well taken on the need to use the yard runaround. I just don't envision how to make the yard area any different. Ill gladly take suggestions.
