Model Train Layouts & Track Plans



Home One Big Basement Layout in N scale

See one large N gauge train layout under construction, where SCARM helped with testing of different ideas by visualizing them in 3D to the layout's creator.

Description

Here is what TrainNut says about this layout:

"I've been working on a decent sized plan for a while now... somewhat mountainous stuff. I've now got a very nice basement and a decent sized room that nobody in the family has claimed... until now!

The layout is N scale with a single line of HOn3 4" lower and around part of the perimeter. I figure with the similarities in the track, and the distance separation, it should not look too out of place. Upon completion, I will be able to run 5 trains independently of each other, OR 1 train anywhere on the whole layout (with the exception of the HOn3 line). There are lots of tunnels but I have designed two access circles inside of two separate mountains for easy track access.

The layout itself will occupy a space that is roughly 21' X 12' in a walkout basement room that is 38' X 15'. It's not complete, but I've used SCARM to help me get an idea of the 3D aspect.
