Layout design part 2

Here it is, after reworking the bit between S4 and S9 to allow enough space to fit a loco pulling three 50' cars.  The cool entrance to siding 2 which appeared in the previous version (the one which allowed us to get rid of an S-curve) is gone, and the S-curve is back.  Only this time I put a 5" straight piece between S9 and the curve that leads to siding 2, so hopefully that'll be enough to mitigate the effects of the S-curve.  5" is long enough to fit a 50' car.

I couldn't leave well enough alone, so I added a third siding just for kicks.  Hopefully it isn't overkill.  We'll see.  At least I oriented S11 properly so I didn't end up creating another S-curve.
