A Little Site Organization

I have decided to clean up my website a little bit and have added some new pages to keep myself organized. I have divided my layout into 5 sections, the sections are as follows:

Bend Depot: This page will cover the area around the iconic stone depot. This will be where operators gather up their paperwork and grab the RS-3 assigned to switching Bend customers.

Greenwood Ave: this is a small scenic section on the layout that will be between the Depot and Division street. It will feature the three track underpass and pilot butte in the background.

Division Street: The are between Greenwood and Brooks Willamette will have the most complex track work of the layout. This area will feature a number of crossovers and a variety of industries. Depending on how busy the customers are in this area will change the difficulty of the job quite a bit

Brooks Willamette: This section will feature the Brooks Willamette particle board plant. I have moved the woodchip loader from the back of the Brooks Scanlon mill to this area as I wanted to add the woodchip loading. This area of the layout will also feature a section of a residential area and light commercial. This will also separate the two sides of the layout and make the layout seem larger.

Brooks Scanlon: This will be the end of the layout and will feature the large Brooks Scanlon mill. There will also be a scale track that most of the cars loaded in town will need to weighed before departing on the next train out of town. I have also set it up so that continuous operations are possible by placing in lift out bridge at the end of this section
