Plans For My New American Flyer Train Layout

This is basically the track plan I will be using.  Just click on it and you can enlarge it.  The layout will be a 3-foot shelf around the perimeter of my 20X40 train room.  Key to it is the dogbone design which will permit me to walk into the room and walk around the inside of the layout.  There will be two levels with all of the track being inter-connected to give a tremendous amount of open running track.  I may not have any switches on this layout at all.  The yard may just be unconnected storage tracks.  Color coding:  green = upper level; red = lower level; blue = water; black = scenic elements and structures.  Notice that the green merges into the red and vice versa.  Those are 2% grades between levels.
