Model Train Layouts & Track Plans

Home The N-Scale Dining Table Layout of Sean

Very interesting project for a N-scale layout built into a dinning table and covered with glass. The track plan features two oval lines on two levels, connected with diagonal line which crosses a small town. The layout has passenger station and freight terminal, so it is suitable for both passenger and freight trains as well as for shunting/switching operations.

Here is what Sean says about his layout project:

"So here's my first layout design using SCARM. The idea is to insert a layout into my dining room table, comprising of 3 1/2 loops with a middle line connecting them, on two levels. Four separate controlled tracks, (seen by the colours on the plan view). All I have to do now is persuade my wife to let me cut up the table."
