My layout plan.

  1. Hi rail fans,
    This my layout plan at the moment, it's the fifth layout that I have built sins I live here
    in this house, and that 27 years already.
    I can run in DC and in DCC, this is because only 7 of my +/_ 35 loco's have a decoder as of yet.
    It is a freelance BNSF/SF/UP/SP and some CSX and Reo Grand.
    I have a video of the mohavi sub, Witch is filmed in the Tehachapi mountains and runs from Bakersfeild to barstow, and if you look good and with a lot of imagination, whitch I have,:D :D :D you can see this in my layout, at least I see it that way and that's wat counts, right guys.:thumb:
    The white lines is the upper section and the blue is the lower section.
    More photo's will come as I progress.

    You do mean Rio Grande, and Mojave Sub, correct? Cool track plan! I wish I had that much room for such a layout, good work! :thumb:
  4. Hi Jim,

    That's right, the lower section is a staging yard with room for 10 to 15 wagonsand one loco. the drawing is not kompleetly to scale. I have a small camera to view that yard.

    The overall size is 6meters x 5 meters (19ft x 16ft)
    The tabeltop is 3ft from the floor
    Min radius 26 inches
    Wissels are Nr 5, 6 and some Nr 8
    Gradents 2.5% and one is 3%
    Track is code 100 from peco

    I still have a lot of work to do, but I'll get there.
  5. Yes Miles,
    Sorry for my spelling, some times I write in english and think in dutch, thats calld dubbel dutch, I'm sure you have heard of it:D :D :D
