The SCARM track plan
Here is what T. J. says about the layout:
“It took me a long time to build a layout that I enjoyed. I don’t care much for building scenery, so I was focusing my efforts on allowing the largest number of trains to be stored and run at one time.”
“I spent many hours in SCARM trying to work out a track plan that would allow me to run two trains at once, let me park all of the trains at once, and be fun to work on. It even has a little work bench attached so I can keep the transformers out of the way of the trains.”
