    SOme of those layouts are fantastic. The effort and time paid off. I spent quite some time looking at the photos, following the various links. Very nice, indeed!! :)

    Here I want to show you one cool whim: single track route for using with rolling stock in two scales - standard gauge N (1/160) and narrow gauge HOn30 (1/87).

    Small Folding Layout For Use in Both HOn30 and N scales

    [​IMG]

    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 HOn30 (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.

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

    This project 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.

    I hope that you will like these designs :)

    See 3 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"

    [​IMG]

    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

    [​IMG]

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