The layout room is a modest 16 x 19 feet with the layout running along the walls – 24 inches off the wall. (Click on pencil icon to isolate post, then move cursor over the plan to zoom in.)
The Turnout runaround is in Rock Island, IL, and acts as fiddle staging. Moving south the line services three different industries before crossing the Rock River and entering Milan, IL.
In Milan, the branch splits at the town’s namesake depot with part of the line moving east (Eagle Sub) to service a food distributor and a lumber dealer. The other extension continues south (Andalusia Sub), under Interstate 280, and then turns west to service a number of different companies.
Below is a Google aerial view showing the modeled and staging segments of the layout.
