Diesel Shops and Turntable Part 3

One thing about modeling is don't be afraid to change thing around. After looking at the turntable and the track arrangement for a week or so I just wasn't satisfied with how it looked. I wanted a roundhouse but didn't have the room. I thought about cutting a corner off but then again I didn't want to do that, so I added a small section to the layout coming out in the aisle. Adding this section left me to get a 3 stall roundhouse back on the layout. I also started on the false front of the diesel shop. I had a Bachmann 2 stall engine house that I had not used and didn't plan on using anywhere at the time.
