Nice layout's Chris. I like the Nn3. Amazing those engines run that smooth.

I'm itching to get involved but have to many RR projects in the works already. I do have a plan for building a module, but it's not in On30, it'll be in TT scale.

I'll be following along.

Always enjoy seeing your mini layouts Chris! Are you still working on your Nn3 Gravel Pit layout?

I started then got way more info on the real quarry. Planned a bigger, more prototypical layout. Gave up. Currently trying a smaller freelanced version. Sometimes too much info make you want perfection...

Now that Chris has shown us that this can be done let's get some more track down!

Chris,
Thanks for all of the posts the first n scale layout track plan you posted could quickly be converted to an ON18 factory scene by swapping the structures to one large structure with multiple doors.

Chris, thanks for showing all your various mini layouts. Just incredible, and just goes to what can be done in a small space.
It certainly puts a stop to the old saying that " I don't have room for a layout". Very inspirational.

Chris, Thanks for inspiring us with your beautiful micro layouts. If I didn't have so much on the go, I'd give it a try as I have a few ideas in my head.

Looking forward to seeing other's people's ideas.

Here's another excellent example of a 2x3 foot layout, this time 1/35 scale and WWI themed:
