Attachment 135946

layout is 18" radius minimum, up to 9" of elevation, built for 1890's rolling stock, geared steam.
I am truly considering using this layout for my own setup. My benchwork does offer a bit more space but this is the closest layout I have seen that peaks my interest.

You probably do not have a rough materials list for this layout do you? I really like it and with some tweaks here and there I think this would definitely foot the bill. I did follow the links, watched the video etc. I wasn’t sure if you had more information on it to aide me along constructing it. Something I could print off perhaps that has more detail information of the track.

I just thought I would ask but this may very well be the one that I can launch from.

Original post stated newbie layout suggestions. Many layout postings here no matter how nice and sophisticated cost thousands of dollars. I doubt a newbie would attempt these layouts.
Here is a simple 4' x 8' layout that cost me $750 including the platform table and paint. Careful shopping for used items made it possible for the lower cost with about 50% used. Perhaps at a later date the layout could go from a green flat board to real landscaping using sculptured foam board with fake grass.

Nice spot for a baby grand piano there in the middle! Can't wait to see some track.

to norfolksouthernguy ...
I used scarm to develop the layout, if you download it, [the free version],and also the layout [scarm file] you can then get a parts list, and elevations of the track..I don't have scarm loaded right now ..

sorry I missed the posting ..

Thanks John.

What I like most about the multi-levels is that it doesn't look like it's all one set of tracks because of the tunnels and where they are located.
