Unfortunately not. One possible alternative would be to have a 10' x 5' rectangular layout, which it seems would let me have my double loop in OO, just not as long a loop as I had hoped for.

Re: OO layout size

I do want to run big locomotives, and reasonably long trains. I do have some alternative locations where I would have more space, but this one is by far the most convenient. I'm going to send for a bit of N kit and see how I feel about it, I suspect it won't be as bad as I think. My eyesight problem...

Re: OO layout size

Perhaps I should get hold of some N Gauge stuff and see how it feels.

Re: OO layout size

Thanks for the reply. I have considered N. The problems with that, as I see it, which may be completely wrong, are:

1. My eyesight isn't brilliant (never has been) and is getting worse.
2. I don't have very steady hands
3. I want DCC, and it seems to me that restricts things quite a bit in N

OO layout size

Hello! I'd like to take up modelling in OO. One of the possible locations for my layout is an L-shape in the corner of a room, 10' along one wall, and 9' along the other. The depth would be 3'.

Would this depth prevent me from running a double 'circuit' of track?
