Track Plan #1

Well gang, I've been doing a lot of playing around with track designs recently. I've been looking for a design that really fulfills all my needs. I came up with the following design as a way to take everything I wanted in a layout and pack it into as small a space as possible. Ultimately I think the sidings are a bit too short for my liking and so I will need another pass at this design, but I thought this (admittedly unfinished) illustration was worth sharing.

One interesting note is that this plan includes a nice, scenic area devoid of structures or complicated track work. It fits the locale I am modeling nicely and is something I will be looking to include in future track plans. More changes and second guesses are sure to come!
