Hello all, I have always been interested in model RR but never really had the room at my home. My grown Son now married and has a place of his own. He asked me a few months ago if I would like to do a layout in his basement. I said sure! We are doing HO scale. The layout is aprox 22ft X 17 FT. Benchwork is just about complete. We have much to learn!!

Welcome to the forum and MRRing! For your first layout, the plan and it's size is great.
There is a lot of knowledge here, so just ask.
You and your son are going to have a lot of fun. Keep us posted on your progress.
