Hello all! I had an HCD layout well under construction (initially started here) until I found out I would be relocating to the railroad capital of the US in Chicago for work. It was an excellent opportunity, however the sacrifice of living in the big city is a smaller apartment and I have a 10'x10' spare room which is where all the storage/guest room/study must go. I commandeered about 32"x62" for an N scale layout that will be suspended from the ceiling to keep utilization of the room. The two layouts providing the most inspiration are the Havaphew Central from 05 MR and MRR books and Dave V's Colorado Midland. My old layout was based on the double mainline HCD trackplan. This is the new one I came up with based on what I learned with the last layout which got to the base scenery before heading to the dumpster. Notes: - As with the prior layout: Transition Era, Rockies ATSF/Rio Grande trackage, built around passenger trains. - Prior use was Kato Unitrack, but with such a small layout and attention to detail I am going to venture with Atlas C55 sectional because of the tight curves - In the below design I kept the outer loop with 15" radius for the longer cars while shorter locos/cars can navigate the branch with 10" radius curves. - Wanted multi-level action as the prior layout felt very flat despite the scenery elevation changes - Appearance of a small yard and switching operations at the mountain terminus - The "wide" curves do not allow room for a switch for an interchange running off an edge I would love to hear your thoughts or suggestions... I feel like it is a significant amount of track crammed in to a small space. I really enjoyed the recent 24"x48" layout thread as well as Mike's small trackplans, but if you have any other ideas or track plans for that have stood out to you please share!
