    Hi,

    I am looking to make a layout in a 6ft x 3ft area. It's going to be in N scale. So far, the trackplan I like the best is Scenic and Relaxed. But, I would like to increase the amount of track. I want a spaghetti bowl type tracks, as I get more than enought model building with wargames, and I want lots of track. Saying as such, does anyone have ideas on how I can increase the amount of track? The pictures are below.

    Thanks

    Evan

    To my mind if you have too much trackwork, it doesn't leave much area for sceneics.That plan above is excellent and would provide many hours of fun switching around.

    I agree with Shamus 100%, but if you really want it tracky, you can add some sidings here and there (not a lot of room left!):

    I also agree with Shamus; but if you want more track, you could add more tracks to each siding. So that each single siding becomes a double siding.
