Stumbling across this photo was my Indiana Jones moment.
It's a photo of E. L. Moore's Elizabeth Valley RR after the track was in place but before the scenery was installed. I believe it's the clearest photo in existence of the layout's trackplan. I had held off building an N-scale EVRR because I had some doubts about my trackplan, and was hoping I'd find a picture like this.
But, it has a Goofy issue.

Way-back-when I took a stab at drawing a trackplan based on what I could deduce from published photos. In comparing my result to this photo I'm happy to see my drawing was more-or-less ok except for that area below Goofy on the lower level. There appears to be a switch with a spur going off to the right. Where does it go? Does it connect to other track? These and other questions need investigation.
But, Goofy is in the way of a clear view of the situation.
I'm going to have to study this image along with the other photos to see if I can figure out what's going on trackplan-wise and make suitable updates to my drawing. Among other things, I'm hoping it'll simplify the tricky track wiring.
