    have to figure out a better angle or way to take the pics, but here is a glance.
    it is 2 feet wide by 8 feet long, mostly a switching a yard operation with a round house and turn table.
    my grandfather got me the atlas turn table years ago ( over 20 and last year i decided to buy the roundhouse to match and found out the old turn table was up to date for the new roundhouse, so it was replaced with the new atlas turntable.)
    the layout was based on the

    i had to make a few changes to fit my space and needs but i really liked the track plan and the changes.

    now just have to make few zoning plans changes and I am good to go.

    i am sure with some land scaping and other work it will look better

    2'X 8' isn't so bad, that's what I started with and had lots of fun with the detailing. I managed to put a switchback on mine so at least the trains would look like they were going somewhere!

    well glen i hope to expand it by 3 feet at the roundhouse end, going in a L shape, jsut so i have room to park a train a short train but it will hold a train to look as if it going some where.
