I’m not doing anything at the moment about planning anything, but I am looking around for ideas. The site looks interesting, but I’m having trouble viewing it. Is there some sort of trick to opening the images? When I click on the thumbnails, nothing happens. When I go to the Image Gallery, instead of the picture, all I get is a large question mark in the picture frames, and clicking on the arrows to move from image to image doesn’t do anything.

I normally use Safari, but I’ve also tried Google Chrome with the same result.

Not sure, could be some temporary server breakdown. Just checked now and it seems to work fine.

And now for the new projects that were added in the past 2 months - see them below:

The last published project shows one interesting idea: single track route for using with rolling stock in two scales - standard gauge N (1/160) and narrow gauge HOe (1/87).

Small Folding Layout For Use in Both H0e and N scales

Image

The track plan is designed as single line in “double 8” figure with one small station in front and train stop at the back. The layout is planned to allow exchanging of the buildings, signals and some other parts depending on the current rolling stock scale – N (1/160) or narrow gauge H0e (1/87). The guy who builds this layout has prepared different stations and surrounding buildings, different types of signals and different locos and coaches. Only the tracks and the grass will be the same in both scales. Check the link to see more pictures in the two different setups :)

Two new N scale layouts were published in the site from the beginning of the year - see them below:

The Train Layout with The Old Castle

Nice layout with precise designed virtual buildings (all are from real kits) with many details and rich decorations.

Image


A Small Layout in the Kid's Room in N Scale

This layout represents a whole room with bed on the upper level and all the furniture, for L-shaped layout with buildings and rolling stock on it.

Hope you will like these projects :)

Here are shown three more layouts in HO (1/87), TT (1/120) and N (1/160) scales, all in oval form:

Compact HO Track Plan feat. Figure "8"

Image

The plan above has one internal loop with one entry point, but can be easily modified in 2 different ways in order to get one more entry/exit point. The modifications are described in the article.


Compact Oval in TT scale

Image

This design is just a simple oval with small train station in the center.


THE EYE - 3' x 5' N-scale Layout of Brian

Image

And one already build layout for simultaneously running of up to 3 trains
