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.
with a 5 foot wide board reaching to the rear to clean track etc is a bit awkward, assuminmg you are in a room, what about going round 3 walls and having a narrow 'bridge' between the two ends of the horse shoe with a lift out section so you can operate from in the middle. this gives the impression of more room as the loco can go out of site behind you giving an imaginary country run before it comes back into view. operating a tail chaser from the outside is like watching a scalextric race. though not the end of the world if you have to, a few hills and tunnels to break things up a bit helps avoid with the merry go round look.
