With the basic layout completed on maya I could then use the top view to print a snapshot of the area I had to work with and use it to improvise on my original layout sketches.
By working on top of the printout I could map out key assets such as the bridge network and the rail network in accordance to my drawings.
Using photoshop I layered the original drawing over the top view snapshot and then improvised the train lines positioning within the scene.
With the tracks laid down I then drew on the overhead bridge levels that would complete the layered look of the trainyard.
I found this way of working to be a very quick and easy way and also worked very accurately in terms of scaling and positioning. With this way of mapping out the level I could apply the same principles to district 2.
