Plan B    rh0201-a

Finally, Wesley provided an excellent excerpt about how to build a quick and easy layout.  Here is the link:



  1. I would like to see two “ovals” with sidings on one both. Ovals could mean a figure eight for one
    Allows two trains to be running at the same time

  2. (Since we are all listed as Member, leave a name or initials unless you wish to be anonymous.)
    I especially like layout # 2 the best. With careful attention to the turnouts, two trains can operate. It has sidings and the makings of a small rail yard. It seems no more difficult to put together than any of the others.
    Bill F.

  3. I agree with Bill F. I vote for layout #2. It seems the best for the show also and will be more inviting for prospective ticket sales.
    Frank G.

  4. I agree that number 2 would be the most attractive to a beginner to this hobby.
    If the figure 8 is an over – under, the spurs could be routed inside a loop of the 8.
    4 and 5 are the same layout.
