According to google earth, that track layout is about 1,630' long. "Stage 1" gets me everything I need though as far as my garbage and wood hauling, the rest will be expansion goals as time goes on.

I messed around in CAD, and was able to narrow the base up to 3-1/2" x 8", trimmed off the un-used portion of the locking "table", and then drew up another version of the red circle target that will mount higher up and by itself for mainline stands. Hopefully I can have the parts made on the laser within a week or so and play with putting the first one together.
I could have narrowed it up more, but felt it was important to have the quarter circle opening in the baseplate so that the drawbar could be inserted/connected from the top or bottom.
