I have always like this little track plan and have considered it a few times if i ever tackle a small exhibition layout.
Can't wait to see it under construction.

Hey Mark,

If you need any help modifying this for your space, let me know, I am back at designing again.

Take care,
Rob.

Hi Mark,

With the changes you want made to the plan, would it be better to begin with this other version of Sloat Lumber:



You also say that you only have 9' of space, but mention replacing the cassette with a car float dock. Does the dock have to be within the 9', or is that an addition like the cassette is now?

Take care,
Rob.

Rob, thanks for finding that version. I have 4" more wall space on he length then a 3' door right at the corner of the room. I can live without the carfloat. Thanks again.

Hi Mark,

Here is Lennart Elg's design converted to your 9-foot long space. The structures seemed a bit undersized in the original plan, so I increased their size.

Here is the plan:



I also mocked the design up in 3D just to see how it all looked. It is only a quick and crude rendering, so I didn't make any attempt to conform the scenery to the structures. The Shay is also standard gauge, so it appears too big for the scene.

Here are the 3D renderings:











Take care,
Rob.

Mark and Rob,

That looks like a very functional design. It also offers a lot of interest to the viewer with the variety of businesses. I like the rail to water setting.

A critical design aspect is providing space for an engine to escape and run around its train. Looks like as drawn the track next to the engine shop is indeed long enough for a car or two as well as an engine.

Mike

That's almost the same size as the space I had down on the flats in my railroad design. I think I may have to incorporate some of those elements. At the minimum I should have room for more track. Thanks for sharing! I can't wait to see what you do with it!

That looks like it would be a great layout! Looking forward to see it come to fruition.

Rob, thanks for resizing the plan. I like the looks alot better.

One building I was going to change is the carpenter shop to Sierra West's tractor repair shed. The demension are 10" along the track side and 12" deep.

Hi Mark,

There's just not enough depth in the scene where the carpenter's shop in located for the tractor repair shed. The area is only 12" long by 8" deep. Your entire scene is only 24" wide, so that building would require at least half of that depth to fit on the layout.

Take care,
Rob.

Rob the actual building size is 8"X8" and the additon towards the backdrop is 6" from track center. Sorry I overestimated in my other post. Thanks
