Shujinkousen Track Plan
- Shujinkoumachi is to the left, Mokidate is to the right.
- Dashed lines indicate tunnels.
- At "A", the spur track was intended to descend to the fiddle yard, see below. It was actually built to descend to a stub end just long enough to hold the entire 16-car 100 series (about 8', or 2.6m) train.
- Somewhere near "B" there will be a high bridge over a gorge.
- Note that at "C", the track actually goes behind the backdrop.
- At "D", the southbound track (towards Shujinkoumachi) must descend fairly steeply to end up at the same level as the northbound track, which rises in a circle under the scenery.
- Mikumaji is probably located in the mountains near "C".
The fiddle yard
- When it turned out the layout had to be moved, the underlayout fiddle yard idea was scrapped.
- The track would have ascended to the surface at "A".
- The small squares indicate where benchwork legs penetrate this level.
- The big circle was going to be a deep helix to drop the track more than 12" with between 2% and 3% grade.

To tell me how stupid it is to have only three turnouts on such a large layout, send e-mail to email@example.com.
