Hi Gödel

Planning a station layout is so much easier when you have a real station plan to base it on.

One of the compromises is always going to revolve around
1) Train Length
2) platform length
3) storage siding length.

In terms of your aspirations concerning running a 11 coach passenger train, that can stop at the station, may have to give way to it just passing through the station.

On my layout, my station area is approximately 5 meters long, but the longest platform length is about 2.2 meters long )points take up a lot of space!) but it does allow me to run a 9-10 coach train (DRG and Landerbahn coaches where not as long as today's examples) which looks right for the station.

Cheers

John

Hi Goedel,

I think you are a storage yard short. The top line (red line that runs into the black) probably need one so that your overall plan goes Return loop-Storage Yard - Ötztal - storage yard - return loop.

Cheers
