    Mixy,

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I hope you don't mind my posting access to Scarm on BarstowRick.com.

    I think this will be more then just helpful to those wanna be layout builders.

    Great plans and great ideas. Wow!

    Thank you Rick,

    Sure, you can post about SCARM and the layouts in your site - lets more railroad modelers to know about it and use it for free :)

    The last published project shows one interesting idea: single track route for using with rolling stock in two scales - standard gauge N (1/160) and narrow gauge HOn30 (1/87).

    Small Folding Layout For Use in Both HOn30 and N scales

    [​IMG]

    The track plan is designed as single line in “double 8” figure with one small station in front and train stop at the back. The layout is planned to allow exchanging of the buildings, signals and some other parts depending on the current rolling stock scale – N (1/160) or narrow gauge HOn30 (1/87). The guy who builds this layout has prepared different stations and surrounding buildings, different types of signals and different locos and coaches. Only the tracks and the grass will be the same in both scales. Check the link to see more pictures in the two different setups of this nice layout :)

    Two new N scale layouts were published in the site from the beginning of the year - see them below:

    The Train Layout with The Old Castle

    Nice layout with precise designed virtual buildings (all are from real kits) with many details and rich decorations.

    A Small Layout in the Kid's Room in N Scale

    This project represents a whole room with bed on the upper level and all the furniture for L-shaped layout with buildings and rolling stock on it.

    Hope you will like these N-scale designs :)

    Here are shown three more layouts in HO (1/87), TT (1/120) and N (1/160) scales, all in oval form:

    Compact HO Track Plan feat. Figure "8"

    [​IMG]

    The plan above has one internal loop with one entry point, but can be easily modified in 2 different ways in order to get one more entry/exit point. The modifications are described in the article.


    Compact Oval in TT scale

    [​IMG]

    This design is just a simple oval with small train station in the center.

    This is one already build layout for simultaneously running of up to 3 trains

    So a question - how do draw the 3D plans like the first picture in the above post?

    SCARM renders the terrain automatically, according to the height and mode of the tracks in the plan. You can modify the terrain as explained here:

    How To Create Hills And Valleys in SCARM

    All other scenery items, structures, objects and even the walls and room furniture can be created using the figures in SCARM. More about that can be found here

    How to create houses and buildings
    Rivers and lakes in SCARM track plan
    Baseboard/Workbench Support Structure For Your SCARM Layout

    And two examples:

    1) Simple

    [​IMG]

    2) Complex

    All these are represented with figures, drawn and set with the specific properties in SCARM.

    That layout in a trunk is quite imaginative. (y)
