Gulf Mobile and Ohio - Gulf Coast Layout

This is my current layout. The door is at bottom right hand side and windows of left wall. Currently I can walk around the left side. I will be rotating it 90 degrees to the right this weekend and against the left wall. And will be starting a Logging operation along the right wall. Will determine size once everything is shifted. I can have two trains operating on continuous running , one in the town area , another around the whole layout. The yard can be switched as well as industry near the yard without interference . By using block switching the Town area can be switched while dodging a Running train in this area . This is a D.C. layout and have no intention of going DCC.

In the first picture the Passenger Terminal does not exist. So here is how things will look after shifting things around.

Well I have decided that more trackage and trees are required for my logging area. And at the same time make room for a sawmill and associated structures. So the 13"x 6' that is currently the logging area will become the Saw Mill. The Logging will be raised 16 - 18 inches and become a second unattached Layout. I will also add at the other end a area for Louisiana Eastern railroad and Associated Gravel Industry. I will add links to the Louisiana eastern story in the comments. The Louisiana Eastern rostered 27 Steam Locomotives and ran a excursion train on Sundays. Paulson Spence had planned a Museum with some of thes Engines and this will be represented as well. Many of these Engines came from Railroads I model so the Museum will have them shown in Paint not of Louisiana Eastern Scheme but I.C. or G.M.&O ect.  Well I have decided that more trackage and trees are required for my logging area.

Haven't posted a up date in a while. Have a good start on my backdrop. Facia is installed need to counter sink the screws and get control panels built. Will be adding a second unconnected level for my logging operation at some point
