I spent three years fiddling with the track plan.  It’s only a yard, but over time I found my tastes changing, particularly when I learned more about prototype steam-era engine terminals.  The last changes made were actually done as I was laying track!

Here is the track plan as published in MRP2015 (used with permission from Model Railroader Magazine).



Here is how I integrated the layout design with the west end of NYC’s Central Terminal, Buffalo, NY.  I used a USGS map from 1950 I found on the internet.  The beautiful map below was made by Kalmbach’s Rick Johnson from a JPEG I sent of the map with the sketched modeled area done in Microsoft Paint.  MR staff does terrific work.
