Los Angeles Junction Ry Plan-First Module - lajry - 05-22-2018

Having moved from Bellflower to Santa Fe Springs CA had to come up with a new plan for this apartment. Living in an apartment it will be modular since can't build anything permanent. But wanting to get something going came up with this plan plus switching info. Some will say it's too crowded but the real LAJ is just like this. There's 64 miles of track & industries crammed into a 2 x 5 square mile area.  Only going to be doing the LAJ on the west side of the LA River. Will only be doing about 7 Switch Lead, 1 yard & Santa Fe's Vernon Team as it's right next door to LAJ's Fruitland Team. Will also have a staging yard.

Plenty of switching in there that’s for sure. How big is the scenic baseboard going to be?

This HO module is going to be 2' x 10'. Will also have a staging yard off to the right. "Scenery" will only be something to ID what's on each spur. The modules will consist of 2" Styrofoam in an aluminum frame. Frame will also include foldup legs. The regular layout will on 12" to 16" wide modules. Also want to have some Switch Leads on "stacked" modules to save space.

Made a few more changes to the plan. Changed the spurs in upper left to be able to spot more reefers at Federal Cold Storage. Lengthened siding a bit on left end. Removed some silos from General Mills as found out those were added after my modeling era (pre 1996). Also attached latest staging yard plan. This one has a few more tracks to hold more cars. May have to make some tracks staging trays to change out cars without having to 0-5-0 them. ~} The layout is 2' x 10' & staging yard is 2' x 6'. The bridge between the two is 40".  That will be lift out for now.
