a nice layout

a nice layout

this layout seems to be perfect setup for someone with only room for a 4/8 piece of plywood. this n scale setup looks to be 3/6 so 4/8 in tt would make for a good run.

But it is only a circle... Ok, two circles.
I think if you have a 4*8 space, you can built something more interesting.
At least it would be interesting to build some mountains in the middle and put some tunnels there.

For example, in January 2012 Model Railroader published very interesting project - the Virginian layout.
We discussed it here.
january-2012-model-railroader-project-layout-t1361.html

It is 4*8 in H0! So if you repeat it in TT you can add something more...

Gents, topic has been moved to off topic as this is an N scale layout.

Hi Mark,

I have to disagree, since the topic category is "Layouts and Trackplans", and that is what was being discussed, how this layout/track plan could be adapted to TT. Just because the video of the layout happens to be in N scale doesn't make it any more "off-topic" for TT than if it was in 1:1 scale, since the gist of the discussion was adapting a track plan in other scales for use in TT. No matter the scale, they're all layouts and track plans. :smile:

wow, this topics all over the place! it was my intent to show what can be done in a relatively small space and for myself, probaly using bedding track. Arseny, mountains and rivers are great but im more into industrial areas with a lot of warehouses and a whole lot of switching. i like operations as opposed to just running trains around a layout.

Sorry, jmass, just didn't catch the "TT" statement at the end of your initial post. Now that you mention it, you did originally put this in the General topic didn't you?... I could move it again if you like?

Compared to Kato in the video the turnouts from Tillig have sharper curves and inferior assembly of the points, and I don't like them much.

Well then if my earlier info isn't wrong, blame Kato - I've been told they make the bedding track for Tillig.
