Hi David,

I had a look at Terry Hansley's Oyster Harbour to get an idea of what you wanted. I also read your other post about wanting a module 24"-30" deep, so I came up with a very generic layout to fit your space. (We can refine it as I know more about your goals.) Although I extended the plan to 60" along the right wall, that can be easily eliminated without really losing anything, since it is just scenery. I also kept in mind your desire to expand, so there are exit points at both ends of the module.

1st Draft:



Take care,
Rob.

Thanks for the quick response. I guess I didn't specify but my 5' wall is actually on the left side (did I say right?). I am surprised by the amount of structures you fit in. Is this On30? When I try I run out of room. I do have some mocked up buildings now to play with so I will see what happens in "real" life.

Hi David,

When looking at Oyster Harbour, the layout is designed with very small structures, so I copied that look. If you already have bigger structures to fit on the modules, I will need the foot print measurements, so I can design layout around them. You did say the 5' wall was along the right hand side, but it is no big deal flipping the plan. I will wait for the sizes of your structures before proceeding with anything.

Take care,
Rob.

Rob, I like the design you did for David. I WOULD LIKE A SLIGHTLY MODIFIED DESIGN TO FIT MY AREA WHICH IS 14' X 9' l TO THE RIGHT. I plan on future extension from the 9' end along a 3' wall of a closet bump-out. if you could eiminate the crossover at the station track that would be nice. Thanks in advance. Mark

Hi Mark,

I see two room sizes: 14' X 9' and 4' X 9' ... I am also not sure what the "TO THE RIGHT" means after your measurements.

Take care,
Rob.

Hi Rob,
I don't have any specific buildings but I did mock up a couple of buildings I pulled from plans I found. They are roughly 9 1/2 x 12 (seems to be a popular size) and I did up an engine house that was 17 x 8, which seems awfully large. It's one of the frustrating things I am finding with this scale is the lack of published layouts to try and scale out buildings and space. There a few beautiful layouts I have found but no accompanying layout to see what the whole thing looks like.
Cheers,
Dave

Hi David,

Buildings can get very overwhelming on on O-scale layout, but as I said, I kept them small because that's what I saw on Terry Hansley's Oyster Harbour layout. On my plan the station building is 9" x 10", the engine house is 8" x 16", and the warehouse on the pier is 10" x 11". I can do a mock-up of the plan you intent to use on the other thread and tell you the approx. sizes of the buildings if you want.

Take care,
Rob.

Hi David,

I did up your other plan just to show you the sizes of the building, and the approximate measurements are shown below. Hope that helps.



Take care,
Rob.

Wow. That's fantastic! Did you use Wyes in there? I'm going to try to plot out your first one as well. It looks more fun operationally which detracts from my original goal of scenery-making.(lol). Could I bother you for dimensions on the original layout's buildings?

Hi David,

Yes, there are two #5 wyes to get the same track alignment as the original plan. I will flip my plan for your room and mark up the measurements on the main structures, and post it again. It should be up in an hour or two.

Take care,
Rob.

Hi Mark,

I will redo the plan for a 14' width and adjust the track plan to remove the crossing.

Take care,
Rob.
