Scenic And Relaxed
Hi gang, anyone ever hear of a layout with that name????
Yep......its a 3x6 ft n-scale layout by Atlas.
You can find it on the Atlas website under track plans.

SCENIC AND RELAXED
Thanks for the replys guys. Has anyone on here built it? I'm looking to get pix that show track elevations and so on. I really feel this is the layout I want to build as my first attempt.
Here is the track plan.
1) Just the track:
2) With some landscaping!
Hello again gang. first off...THANKS TO ALL THAT ANSWERED MY DELEMMA. I got lucky today and got the Atlas book of track plans that shows the Scenic and Relaxed and hopefully I can get on with it and start my layout. Wish me luck. By the way, I tried to post another pic today but once again I goofed. You don't suppose it's due to me being a dumb old man do you (smile)
Tucker, I built the S&R several years ago. If you have (or can get) Atlas book Nine N Scale Railroads, it gives you step-by-step instructions for cutting and assembling the benchwork. If I was going to build it again, I think I would use the Woodland Scenics risers instead of cutting the plywood. but since this is your first layout, you may find it easier to follow the instrucions in the book.
I'll look to see if I have any pictures of the old layout that I can post.
I actually built something based on it with Kato unitrack.
The exception being was I put a 90 degree crossing at grade where the main passes over itself.
Just one of many variations built with Unitrack.
This layout was on the Atlas Catalog front page a few years back. When finished it looks quite nice.
