I started my 1st layout in 2011 after discovering the outstanding website from Carl Arendt.

It serves a brewery, a depot and a team-track.

It has a sector-plate ( for space saving of the runaround ) and is connected to the outside world with a cassette.

I know, I know, I could have modeled a  brewery that brew better beer.

Left view, the sector plate is hidden by a wall. The teamtrack is a busy place.

Nice work, the sector plate (turntable) certainly adds to the operational capability. More photos please!

Thank you Woodie  for your interest in my layout.


I wanted my layout to have a sector plate, but the switching possibilities were very limited.

Then ProfKlyzlr  wisely suggested that I could connect my layout with "the rest he world".

In  my  case it was an interchange with the other railroad crossing my layout on the overpass.

So I made  a hole on the left backdrop, extended the track past the team-track and added a cassette.

That  dramatically  increases the switching possibilities.


Of course I will post more  pictures.


Jacques

Thank you Dwaine and Reg for taking some of your time to "visit" my micro-layout.


The team-track loading platform and the malt silos are scratchbuilt.

I'm proud of that layout because I was able to complete it ( I'm the kind of person who not always finish a project ).


I'm working on a new micro-layout about the Belgian vicinal steam tramway ( SNVC ) circa 1930.

I Have to scratchbuild everything.


In the meantime here is another picture showing the middle part of the layout.
