Doswell Begins

Step 1 of a model railroad is thinking and planning.

I printed out my track plan for Doswell 1:1 and am testing it against the benchwork that was built.

This will allow me to verify what I'm trying to do and also let me modify the plan if I need to tweak it before I glue down the first bit of cork and take a file to a piece of rail.

Looks like we should be good.

I think those broad curves are going to be a signature feature of the railroad.

The track layout is pretty darn close to the prototype; a fair amount of compression is required, but that's every layout ever made.
