Here is what Chris says about his layout design:

"After tearing down my first layout last winter, moving in April, finishing the basement myself, I am finally ready to build this layout. I have been planning this since we were under contract for this new home, because the basement is quite large. After spending my summer finishing the basement I convinced my wife to give me a large portion of real estate for this layout.

My goal for this is to use a MRS 28 inch turntable as the centerpiece of the left section of the layout and a mountain scene/staging yard on the right. I want to be able to run 2 trains at a time on two spate loops. During my design process I drafted up 10 different layout designs, all around the same general shape. This plan is layout #9.

More about this big project and the construction progress can be seen in Chris own topic Pennsylvania and Pacific RR Construction on OGR forum and also in his video blog Chris's O Scale Train Layout on YouTube.
