Layout plan
The general arrangement of the layout.
The buttons below access the layouts of the individual stations and considers some of the factors influencing their design. As has been noted elsewhere the layout is designed for operation, with the scenic aspects being a secondary consideration in the criteria. Goods traffic is a mainstay of the AFK and nearly every station has at least one industry incorporated to ensure that plenty of traffic is offered. One criticism that could legitimately levelled at the layout is that there are too many small and frankly, unlikely, industries dotted around and that there is too much online traffic between stations. In truth the majority of NG lines' traffic was between the tranship point and the other stations and incoming traffic predominated. The typical NG line exported primary products such as stone or timber and many trains back into the hinterland conveyed empty wagons. These ideas were explored in much more detail in a series of articles published in Narrow Lines.
