Here is what Don says for his layout design:

"This layout is designed to fit in the corner of my family room. The shelves shown on the walls are actually up already with trains displayed on them.

I had a much larger version drawn up in SCARM, but realized it would take up more room than necessary, so I desided to scale it back. I already have most of the track, buildings, etc. now I just need to start the board.

I bought the SCARM License Key for v. 1.0 a couple of weeks ago and am so happy I did. Thanks!
