Or in this case, build something, learn from your mistakes and improve.
The Buzzard's Cove micro was bugging me. I wasn't happy with the track work, and decided that if I'm only going to have room for one good layout, it had better be GOOD. I ordered a bunch of supplies from Fast Tracks, with the bulk of the order going for a #4 turnout kit. I have never hand laid track before, so this should be interesting.
The new plan deletes the crossing, and broadens the curves to 12 1/2" R. Still very tight, but the Minitrains locomotives will have no problem with them.
