#150 Series Ideas Pamphlet

These are my interpretations of the layouts shown in an old pamphlet included with the #150, #151, #154 and #155 blue and white 4.5V track sets. Again, due to the different points, they are not quite the same. Thanks to Michel Magnan for lending me the original pamphlet. Layouts A and E are shown for completeness only since they will short out if built with 9V track.
