I'm a little burnt out on Pine Creek so I'm taking a break until later in the summer.

Hi Trebor, I've discovered your Pine Creek layout thanks to Carl's Small Layout Scrapbook.  Very interesting layout, specially from an operating point of view.  But the track plan is not exactly the same as in this topic.  Furthermore, I don't think a car can be stored on track 2 as it has no other track opposite the turntable.  Is that correct that location #1 is on track 1 instead of track 2?  Can you provide more explanations on operating this magic layout?
Thanks and congratulations for your work.  Great!

Good question but a car can actually end up on track #2. As it says, a car can be pushed or pulled into a location. The first step would be to move engine #2 or #3 onto track 2. Engine #1 would move a car onto the turntable. That car can then be pulled into track 2. The engine would be stuck behind the car until it is moved out.

 

The track plan is essentially the same. Tracks 2 and 4 got straightened out when I laid down the track.

 

 I hope that helps.

I agree that a car can be pulled onto track 2.  But in this case, the pulling engine will be stucked onto that track.  Regarding the final goal (to locate the three cars to their randomly assigned location, engine #1 at the water tower and engines #2 and #3 to their origin location (engine house and track #1), stucking an engine on track #2 will fail the target.  That's why I assumed the goal as described in Carl Arendt's site (http://carendt.us/scrapbook/page66a/index.html) is not possible, except switching track #1 and #2 (engine #3 on track #2 and car location on track #1).
By the way, have you already tryied to operate this layout?  I wonder how you can uncouple your cars (with magnet, I assume), but are they located under the track on the turntable?
Thanks a lot
