Members, hardly a day passes that we don't get a newbie who is asking
for layout ideas or actual layout diagrams.
It occurred to me that if each of us posted in this thread a picture,
video or drawing showing the actual track layout it would be of some
help to our new members.
May I suggest that VIEWERS NOT POST COMMENTS so that
the thread will have ONLY posts of layouts. If you have a
question or comment use a PM to the member.
Here is Matt's thread with a lot more layouts.
I hope to have a camera to produce a video of my room size but not yet
completed layout in the future.
But to get this thread started I did a drawing of it. The Room and the
Benchwork are double 0 Scale, but not wanting to measure every track
I simply roughed in the track plan. There is a key.
Basically it is a single track HO DCC main that follows the walls. There
are passing sidings and passenger station sidings, an East and a West
yard, each includes loco service areas. There is a the peninsula with a wye,
the Central passenger station and several industries. There are
industrial spurs at various points around the layout. Most are team tracks
with multiple small industries such as stock pen, Meat Co., Wood working Co.
Construction Co. Food Distributor, Metals Co. Heavy Electrical Co.
Power Plant, Reefer Ice Service, Sand and Rock Co. Less than Carload
freight Station and a Building Materials Co. These are not identified
on the drawing but show as 'Industry'.
I apologize for the inept drawing but maybe you can make sense of it.
