Louisiana Central Railroad Company Layout Construction

This is an overall view inside the alcove.  Both the Louisiana Central and the Spencer trackage will make a 180 degree turn in this area.  The track at right is coming out of Whitcomb, and the track at left is from Oneida.  These are the two tightest curves on both systems:  the Louisiana Central curve is about a 28" radius and the Spencer line curves at a 20" radius.  To make things more difficult, both lines are on a grade:  about 1.8% for the LCRR and 2.5% for the Spencer trackage.  It will take some power to get up those grades!
