Layout Planning has Started

I started with an walk-in design with staging off to the right along back wall.  I could not come with a plan that I like with how the staging entered the layout.

After viewing another MMR site that was using a published MR mag plan. This gave me a ideal, so I started again with the following:

The staging loop will be hidden. Based on my calc's I can stage 8 trains (2 per track). I still need to work out the elevations as the exit from staging on the right will need to grade up to the mainline.

Here a couple of 3D views first from room door

Next from a ceiling view

More to come!

Latest Room Progress

Started taping joints

There is still a lot to do. The area of the old office/layout room still has demo to be done. Next on my list to do.

New Blog Site


I have created this blog site in order to more easily document the progress and development of my N scale model railroad which I currently do not have a name for nor a track plan.

Also this is my first time to use a blog , so until I get a handle on this blogging thing (old dog new trick), more to come.

Please be on the lookout for future posts.
