This is my first attempt at building a route/session. The layout is modeled after a marine terminal operation with several different cargo handling features. It's not complete yet, but I think it's starting top shape up. The terminal is made up of two main areas....a pad/wharf area and a container depot. The pad/wharf area has three main operations which are an export auto-processing facility (Chrysler & Ford), a paper-pulp and rubber import-warehousing complex, and a heavy-equipment export zone. The container depot is for storage of off-terminal empty containers in support of another nearby intermodal container terminal yet to be built.

Be gentle on the noob here..... ;)

Very nice layout! We all gotta start somewhere and it looks like you're headed in the right direction.

It is starting to look good.
I really like the way the wharfs and shipping operations dwarf the railroad (as they should), making the trains look almost insignificant. It's very easy to succumb to the temptation to add too many tracks everywhere, yet you have resisted it well.
In one of the pictures, it looked as though the autorack trains were parked on plain asphalt. I don't know if this is something temporary, or a choice of track that just doesn't show up at the range the photo was taken.

Tonny.

Tonny - I built those ships in 3DSMAX. There aren't a whole lot of ship assets to pick from on the DLS....at least the type I wanted for my layout.
