Hi all. I'm currently renovating a room for my layout.It's 22' x 16' and will have coved corners.My layout will be a freelancer Colorado narrow gauge in HOn3.I've drawn the track plans for it, and I can't wait to start building it.To prepare, I've been doing some city planning for  one of the towns, called Twin Peaks (work name, yet to be decided)]IMG_20170518_110214 by Michael Graff, on FlickrMain Street, the town will be 8' long.The station will be regauged to HOn3.

The street will go upwards in the back and turn into suburbs.

I love the idea of a Colorado NG line where the buildings don't look like a cheap "wild West" movie set!

The track plan for my new model railroad.6.5 x 4.5 meters.It will be Colorado narrow gauge (in HOn3) in the late 30's.

There will be some classic Colorado narrow gauge town building as well.

Very ambitious and certain to be entertaining in the making Michael. The art work is first rate.

Agreed. Much better than many of the layout plans in the magazines!

Michael,

That's one of the best layout concepts I've ever seen!  I like every foot of it.

As other's have said, the best part is that it's not a spaghetti western style railroad, it looks like a true mining railroad meant to serve the mines and the communities along the route.

I assume you'll have staging beneath on a second reverse loop, correct?

Keep up the great work!

--James
