    I have the Carolina Central layout in N-scale and am wondering how I could expand it or make it bigger. Is there a way to add to it to make it a bigger layout? Thanks.
    I would appreciate any thoughts and idea.

    You can expand or modify almost any layout. It may require a lot of demolition and rebuilding, depending upon how finished you are at present.

    How much room space do you have available?

    This is just kind of a dream I have, as I am thinking about taking down a HO layout
    I have to focus on n scale. I was thinking of adding another door on the end of the current
    door that it is on and continuing end to end, or adding another door piece on the end but coming out in a l shape,
    or maybe both. Thanks

    In a previous issue of Model Railroad Planning Tony Koester did a short article showing how to add a wye junction to the upper right hand side (relative to the way the plan appears in my book) and a shelf extension to the CC - something you could consider doing.
    I do like the previous post showing how to open up the end and extending the layout.
    Good luck!

    Something like this perhaps? Extend the interchange track to a switching area.

    The part l have as I indicated is on a hollow core door, my thinking is to make it an L shape and drop both parts into a glass case to then make it into a bar for like a man land type area, so the part that I would add on to what I have would be28 inches wide and like 6-7 foot long. The tricky part of this lay is getting track off the end to connect to another part,,but also I feel like I am pretty green at the hobby in general. Thanks.
