Guys, this site shows a little of what can be done in the world of n scale when it comes to building a nice layout thats portable, operable and will fit in the tiniest of apartments

You could also take it to shows!!!

Jean-louis Simonet has built a beauty of a small logging layout in N scale utilizing the Atlas shay as his jumping off point. The layout is DCC controlled, has a beautiful mill with completely finished interior and is surrounded by nicely finished lighted cieling and backdrop painted side walls on 2 sides.

It is a thing of beauty and I'd love to see someone in here build something similar

Any takers???

Check it out!!!!!  http://simonet.club.fr/Poss_us.htm

Welcome aboard Mike, glad you stopped by:)

When your ready to, you can start your own thread on your layout plans, or if you need help we have a great guy with trackplans in our layout planning forum.

Werners a great guy and a top notch man with a CAD program.

Take a peek in there at the types of questions you will need answers for and he can lend you a hand if becessary......Or, if you already have a plan in mind, perhaps tweaking it just a bit for you is another possibility.

 

Thanks for poppin in Mike and I look forward to seeing your project develop!! :)

Don't know whether this inspires or intimidates, but it is certainly an impressive layout.

G'day all, I thought that you might like to have a look at the small 920 mm X 1230 mm layout that I am building, called Willow Creek Railroad, Willow Creek Railroad. [1001 ~ 1949] is an N Scale Australian logging layout, Willow Creek is a fictious vally south/west of Kiama NSW, Australia. Willow Creek Rr is the first section [ 920 mm X 1230 mm baseboard] of a small 'N' Gauge logging Sectional Layout. http://www.willowcreekrr.net

Jose, I thought it was supposed to be an N scale logging layout...not a museum. Hmmm..

Thanks, that works fine. Very cool, seems very few do loggers in N scale...a shame.

Great lil' layout !



Nice track-plan !

Plenty of switching operations...

...while the Express 'high-balls' the main !

I used to be an 'N'er BTW !

My best layout was a 1 1/2' x 7' short-line ... Happy Days !

Cheers

Si. :P

Jose,

The link that you posted is not the right one. The original link posted by jeffjgale works fine by me.
A repost of the link:
http://www.willowcreekrr.net/index.html

Edit: the layout shown by clicking on the first link of this thread, posted by Todd, is great.
