Here are some pics of my n scale layout, a work in progress. Once this side is finished I intend adding a similar sized section and having a walkway in the middle betwwen sections which will be joined at the far wall in the poc.
This is the Byron Bay to Lismore lone in northern NSW Australia, near where I live. The actual line has been a topic of contention and debate in this region as a section, from the town of Casino to Murwillumbah via Byron Bay was shut down due to it’s poor conditon and the then governments shortsightedness in not paying to maintain it.
Now there are bridges being demolished and not replaced as the debate over what to do with it continues. Being what was once a large rainforest area which is recovering from over clearing I have tried to make the scenery as lush and ‘wet’ looking as possible. Hope you like it.
I am fairly new at model railroading & are in the process of planning a second layout that I hope to be able to show one day.
Like most I guess, I am very constrained for space.
The idea is to have a realistic junction with trains able to enter from both ends with some shunting.
Below is my current proposal.
Overall dimensions are 4500mm x 700mm (will fit a small bukkie. (“pick-up” in american))
Track is atlas code-55
Minimum radius is 11.25in:
All switches are #5
DCC will be used
There needs to be plenty of storage so a variety of rolling stock can enter without to much delay.
Continuous running must also be possible.
Comments and criticisms from your users will be appreciated.
I include some images from my existing layout
Thanks to Steve and Mike for sharing. Can’t wait to read your comments on Steve’s plan.
Please do keep ’em coming folks – it’s all getting a bit thin on ground this end. Just mail you pics to me and I’ll do the rest.
Don’t forget, what ever type of layout you want to create, this will point you in the right direction.
PS Have you seen the latest ebay cheat sheet? I have no idea why at this time of year there are so many deals.
