Model Train Layouts & Track Plans

Home The Mobius Junction O-Gauge Train Layout

Here is what Clive says about this layout:

"This easy-to-build plan uses Lionel FasTrack on a flat 4x8 table. Self-switching "non-derailing" turnouts enable a train to automatically "random route" on a loop-to-loop circuit. A second train can wait on the outer siding to run alternately. The plan can be built entirely with standard pieces of FasTrack and no special cutting is required to fit all the tracks together - thanks to SCARM track planning software!"
