So after finishing up the yard last week, I still had SCARM open on my laptop and I got to thinking about what other aspects of the layout I could design. Lord knows I certainly can't build anything in this tiny apartment - The Wife would have an effing canary if I did. So I thought for a while..
..and then it occurred to me that I haven't really come up with a definitive plan for Port Hood since I scrapped it last year. Knowing the mistake I made last time - operationally speaking - I moved the sidings around and added an extra spot for the coal dealer that was giving me the run-around (if you'll pardon the pun).
This time I think I've got it sorted:
There is now a full time storage/run-around track between the station and the elevator, an extra track opposite the station that ends at the north face of the elevator that will service the fuel dealer via small coal trestle, and the elevator will now be serviced from the opposite side of where it once was. There is also now a dedicated siding for the freight depot.
