Here is what Joe says about this layout:

"This is the plan for my O gauge layout. The main part is 6'x9' and the small extension is 30"x30". The inner loop has O36 curves and the outer loop has 48 curves. All the switches are O36. The layout is in a spare bedroom with just enough room to get around it. The right side is against a wall."
