Gilman, VT Details

The paper mill at Gilman, VT was originally planned to be the signature scene on V1 of the layout, but I never got anywhere near that far.  For now, I will post the track plan here.  It is a long way in the future and will write more about the mill plan when that time draws nearer to reality.

This will definitely be one of multiple signature scenes someday on the upper level, occupying roughly 15 linear feet of the railroad.

This is the one location where I may consider either using tortoise switch machines or mechanical rods from the fascia to throw turnouts due to the location behind the long diagonal building.  It also will likely require some sort of elevated step to enable visibility and reach to couple and uncouple cars behind the long diagonal mill building.
