Model Train Layouts & Track Plans
Home Small HO-scale Layout #3 - Double Ovals
This is a ready-to-build example track plan #3 of a series of several micro sized HO-scale layouts, created with SCARM by Petar Ploskov. All these plans are really "micro" for HO (1:87) scale and are suitable for houses and flats where space is limited.
|Scale & Size|
|Dimensions:||150cm x 110cm; 59" x 43"; 4.9′ x 3.6′|
|Tracks & Route|
|Trackage:||PIKO A tracks|
|Line:||Single, with |
|Min. radius:||360mm; 14.2" (R1)|
This layout offers two ovals (may be set independent) with one train station, one stop and two cargo areas. You can set the double slip turnout in crossing mode and have one long line, passing from inner oval to the outer (and vice versa) or you can have two simultaneously running trains in the both ovals. The plan is based on PIKO sectional track pieces, allowing easy assembling and disassembling if there is no option for creating a permanent layout. It allows analog or digital operation of one or two short trains with continuous running or shunting. However, the small size of the layout is not suitable for running of modern long freight and passenger trains with long 4-axle coaches, but even these are able to pass, with a loco and two or three cars.
• Max. train length: 750mm (29.5") / 645mm (25.4") in shorter cargo area
• Max. number of trains on the layout: 4 (requiring insulated sections for analog operation)
• Max. simultaneously running trains: 2
