A hot water heater can even be sort of incorporated into a model railroad's storyline. Master track planner John Armstrong, who was heavily into bad puns, christened the model station near his water heater, "Agua Caliente!"Did some scale drawings of what I have to work with with the hot water heater in it's current location... Bottom space is 5 feet wide so gives me plenty of options and I probably plan to have a turntable are there but not 100% sure. On the top right side where the hot water heater is once that's gone I'll extend it out and I also might do the turnaround wrapping around my chimney and maybe even do a helix for a second level down the road as I could easily fit a 20+ inch helix around it once the hot water heater is relocated...
