It looked like
But after the chainsawing, I'm left with a blank board and a pile of mostly LIMA setrack.
When I built it, I think I bought most of the ex-local toy shop's stock aside from the two Peco points - which I think I either got from Hearns or Vic Hobby Center.
So now I'm probably operating in a strange order: buy rollingstock, get new track, think of a layout design and fix a roof's in there somewhere, when it comes to a stumblingblock: "Oh, you can't run 'x' on a curve less then 18 inches" WTFBBQ!! I break out some R2 double curves from the Peco starter pack and knock up a quick test section on a tabletop and appear to only have a problem with PL carriages fitted with the factory coupler. The problem seems to go away after fitting a mix of long and medium shank Kadee's and doesn't appear on the R3 test curve.
After all that I start playing with more test sections and in AnyRail muttering over why Peco has to be different between Setrack and Streamline and came up with the following which is a mix of Setrack, Streamline and flex:
And then after discovering anything the length of a PL carriage or FQX wagon when coupled, physically dislike going over a set of back to back ST240/1 points
I'm also starting to think I might've goofed by using SL-88/89 points and that I'll be better off adding a 2 foot extension, so I can run double loop and gain some space to try a better siding arrangement.
Edit: I've done some more thinking and playing with anyrail, if I use the three-ways on the main line oval/loop that means I don't need to use the SL-89 crossover network. Instead at that location I'll place the SL-88 plus a three-way with an inglenook-esc yard probably using all the setrack points (2 LH, 2RH) I have running off it. Up at the double slip, a short siding inside the oval and the other three-way closeing the loop and providing another two sidings or the staring point for the outer oval and one siding.
