I have recently got back into the hobby, but went N scale this time. I have done a simple layout that I like, but want to see if any of you out there that like to help with layout ideas can come up with something better. You can view a pic of mine here.... http://www.the-gauge.com/thread15154-ok-i-did-it-as-well.html I have a bunch of 5" straight and 9 3/4" curves to use, plus 2 90 degree crossings. I want to keep it level, no inclines. I also dont want any switches...well, maybe 2. The point of this layout is to have the 2 tracks cross at some point. It works well now, but would like to open it up some more, so I have more room for scenery. The space is 4'x8', with an opening on one side measuring 18"x30" ______ | __ | |_| |_| Kinda like that. Wow, that is really bad, just go look at the other topic real quick. I appreciate anyone that takes the time to do this. It isnt really necessary, but this was the only thing I could come up with having 2 tracks cross. Again, what I am hoping for is something a little more open.
