The layout consists of main oval with a small train station in front, yard with storage and cargo areas and a turntable with small 3-stall roundhouse. There is a short cross line from the station to the yard and one more cross line passing around the roundhouse, then over a bridge and around the yard. Both these lines acts like reversing loops and helps for various interesting running scenarios.

See the comments and previous versions of the Abisel's plan in Experimenting with SCRAM software - 4x8 layout forum topic.


The updated version of this layout copies the entire original track plan, but with removed left side tunnels, added some scenery and with slightly extended right part in order to allow space for the right tunnel.
