Hi, This is my second atemt for a layout, as the first one took just to much room, I am currently destroying it. I am now building a bookcase (I get the wood tommorow) and on one of the shelfs will be the new layout. And I will use the turnouts I already bought. All the numbers on the picture are in millimeters, I will convert them to foots and inches here for the people who are not used to the metric system. The length is 7 foot and the short length on the right is 4 foot. The depth is between 1 and 1.5 foot. There are 5 stations. on the top left is a medium passenger station which moves passenger trains to an other medium size passenger station in the lower right. On the side track we have a steel factory in the middle and an iron ore mine in the lower left. There is a tiny Nn3 track for the mine train running into the mountain. And there is a big track for the crane for loading steel. The medium sized passenger station should be able to handle 2 large passenger cars with locomotive. A small pendel passenger/loc combination will run on the side line. A maglev will run from the station on the left to an office block on the right. This maglev will be on a upper level, so it will run above the regular line. I have some ideas how this maglev in N scale can be build, but that is an project for later on.
