    He is an active model railroader and has built many models on commission. The yard is at middle-height, and the approaches to each end drop or rise to gain the required clearance. Track was laid directly on the plywood sub roadbed and temporily spiked in place. Here, the diverging routes from the interchange form a reversing loop, so with a little planning, you can switch the many spurs without any runaround moves. Please pay attention: Extremely long wagons might cause problems in narrow curve sections because of the overhang.

    Like I said, it is very easy to cram too much in on a drawing, but will end up looking pretty toy-like in real life. One train at a time. Doing this with the sub roadbed in place helped with the spacing and feel of the layout. Grades can be steep because trains will be very short. If you've acquired one or two of those amazing little N-scale Shay locomotives, or other logging engines, here's their new home. All ready to run.

    Cars appear on the interchange track at upper left, and are spotted at one of the five industries. I wanted to keep the molding around the edge of the closet doors, so the front operator area has no support. An outer oval with an 11" minimum radius encircles another oval with two spurs and a figure-eight. Pencil and Paper

Adding to the fun is limited freight service; a small engine must pick up cars at the interchange and deliver them to the three industries, using the runaround at Main Street if needed, without getting in the way of the streetcars.

The bottom portion of the layout features a tall trestle crossing a valley. Read moreabout the condition Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing. HO Scale Tiny Layouts I had a 48 top notch track plans book flirtation with HO scale a few years ago, but it didn't last, mostly because we moved to a much smaller house where even a tiny HO layout wouldn't fit.

The plans demonstrate all track configurations, from figure eight to switchback to point-to-point, and are suitable for all modeling scales. I was in a weird mood, and I wondered if a worthwhile layout could be built on a six-foot-long 2x4 board, so I came up with this one.

Maybe someday, or on the next layout! Here is a version closer to what I built using Atlas track. Switching this industrial district could keep you busy for hours. An outer oval with an 11" minimum radius encircles another oval with two spurs and a figure-eight.
