Using a combination of XTrack CAD and pencil sketches I’ve started planning the new and improved Wildcat Valley Railway. The railroad is set in the 1920’s – 1930’s as I really like steam era. My train room is 14’6″ x 35’6″ and I have a few ideas of what I’d like to include:

  • A walk in plan with no duck-unders.
  • Point to point operation, with the option for continuous running.
  • A multi-level plan without a helix.
  • A single main line
  • Limit grade to less than 2%
  • 12′ sidings to allow longer trains

Here is what I’ve come up with so far. It includes about 4-1/2 scale miles of main line. Got some work to do yet…
