A lot of years ago, as a child, a used to have Lima trains and tracks and played a lot with them. Recently my nephew found those trains in that attic and now I have to make them work or else ... :)
Well, I managed to get a 3m x 2m area available to use. I already made a "table" to support the structure but now the problem begins, I don't know what layout to use.
I was thinking in have a kinda complicated layout with tunels, bridges and where I can create structures around the tracks but don't know where to start.
Can you tell me if there some place in the internet where I can find these kind of layouts? I searched but I found a lot of "static" layouts (they are beautiful but tracks go no where).

Okay... as far as I know Lima only makes OO, HO, and N scale trains. I'm going to guess that yours are OO as you specified your layout in meters instead of feet. Even if they are HO, the track gauge is the same. If they happen to be N scale, let me know and I'll post links to some N scale layouts.

Oh, and if you're from the UK, you'll be using the terms scale and gauge the opposite of the way we use them in the U.S. Here "gauge" is the spacing of the rails and scale is the proportion of life size the model is built in.

Here are some links to HO layouts:

Thanks for your reply.
I checked those layouts but my little nephew had already decided which one I should make :) He saw Fleishmann catalog and decided to go for the 9922-18 track. Not exactly the same because I have some old items that I want to use but it will be very similar.
Here it is:

Now I will also have to start thinking in recovering old locomotives and passenger but for that I will create a new thread asking for help.
Thanks.
