Final trackplan

After seeing problems with even the 22" curves on the last plan, I started with a clean slate.  This latest track plan has minimal curves on the mainline, with no curves anywhere less than 24" radius.  Most of the curves are far beyond that.  The 2-10-2 handles 24" just fine.

Barring any further issues, this is the track plan that I'll be using, hopefully starting to lay track this coming weekend.  Staging will be done using a portable cassette on the left end (to/from Duluth), and on the interchange to Great Northern on the right end (to/from Grand Rapids).  I won't be able to turn the loco, so it will make the return trip to Duluth backwards.  Should be a fun layout to operate!
