I'm just finishing the reapinting of my bedroom (and I'm getting a new desk in there, later to be turned into a train table), and I want to get to building a layout before I'd be able to start on my full-sized one (I need that table to build my R/C plane on ), so I decided to build a shelf layout. I just finished reading the thread on single-industry layouts (in the Track Planning For The Future forum), and I like the idea... so I'm thinking about doing an aircraft manufacturing area (mostly military, maybe some civilian planes, if I can find the models). The area of the shelf would probably be 16-20" deep, by 4-5' long. I'll probably be able to make it longer, about 7-8' long. Now to the questions... What type of buildings should I buy? I know I'll have to scratch some, and kitbash most of the rest... I'm not even sure what they should look like... if you have photos, or links for me to see, that would be a great help What types of rolling stock would I buy? I'll probably need to bash/mod these, too. Same question for locomotives... but road names, as well. I'll definately have desert scenery, but how much greenery is there in that area? I can only speak for the desert in Arizona (I used to live in Chandler)... I'll try to get an idea for a possible trackplan posted later today. Thanks!
