The best thing for you to do, IS; sit down w/a pen in hand & start designing what you really want & not what others think you want. No one else can design a layout for you. Go to a hobby shop or the book store on this forum & buy a layout design book. I've been building layouts for over 40 years for myself & others. But, I wouldn't even try to help someone decide on a layout w/out seeing the room or shed & talking in person w/the owner of the layout to be.Hello, does anyone have any plans for me yet(thats not supposed to come out bad) lol i nreally need them please im about to move into my new house it would be a blessin if sumone would give me a good one please
Also, we've got to remember Jos draws by hand and does not use scale measurements so his drawing may not work out perfectly.well, i know lots of people are willing, my size space is, 10ft by 15ft, there are no obstacles seeing that it is gonna be built in a shed, the shed has one window, but is high enough to where the layout will not touch it. The industries that i would like to have would be just two industries, one for covered hoppers, and another for tank cars. The scenery type that i would like to have would be mostly mountains with very few tunnels, my maximum would be 2. I would like the layout to be around the walls, and if possible, have a pininsula. My minimum radii is 22''. My scale is HO scale, i want the operation to be modern day, and realistic with passings, sidings etc. The equipment i want to use is modern day locomotives because i am modeling BNSF. Time period modern. And the type of track that i want to use is atlas, with No. 6 turnouts for the minimum.
