Nice area! What scale are you going to be? You could put G in there and still have room.

And I like the access holes. I have two. I hid them, like this:



They are concealed under 1/2" foam board, the type with the shiny outer cover. I made them part of the street. The bottom one is the parking lot to the station. They just lift out, foam is nice and light.

Hey guys

Posts are always encouraged to the Forum, but I had
asked that ONLY track layout drawings, pictures or videos
that show the plans be posted in this thread.
That way members can study,
analyze and compare the layouts
more conveniently without having to read through
non layout posts. If you have any comments or questions
for a person who has posted a layout please PM that
person.

Of course, the person who posts his layout can include
whatever comments or explanations he wants.

Don

New Layout Plan

DonR saw the drawing of my new layout on another thread and suggested that it might also be helpful for those who checkout this thread on occassion looking for different ideas?

The layout plan itself evolved over a few months during the latter part of 2015 and beginning of 2016. Construction of the benchwork started in the middle of March 2016 and is a combination of 3 4x8, 2 4x6 and 1 3x6 sections being joined together. The whole benchwork has casters making it somewhat portable (I am able to move it by myself) and allows for easy access to areas that are more difficult to reach.
Overall dimensions are 24 ft wide, 8 ft on the left and 14 ft on the right. Lionel 027 tubular track has been used throughout, Lionel 042 switches are currently being used, although I will be replacing the six (6) on the front mains and siding with Ross Switches very soon. Overall I am very pleased with this new layout and being 70 something...I'm enjoying it too!!!
Here is the drawing of the layout with accessories, buildings, roads, etc., and how it looks today. Still doing work on scenery and planning for the finished backdrop...

I have added an entirely new elevated section on my layout.
And changed where the yard is.
Also, a reversing turnout to change directions.

Scales Modeled: HO
Its probably about time I posted my plan to this thread as its been under construction for over a year now. Its a HO scale layout that fits in a spare bedroom. Overall layout size is 9.5 x 10.5 ft. I searched for a long time for the right plan to build. I found the Peace River RR Layout that was featured in Model Railroader magazine of March 1987. I liked the continuous running design and the ability to do some operations with it. However I had to modify it a bit to fit into the room I had available. The main way I made it slightly smaller was to use curved turnouts in a few places. All the track and turnouts are from Walthers. For details of building it, see the thread in the My Layout section of this forum at http://www.modeltrainforum.com/showthread.php?t=53721
