Model Train Layouts & Track Plans

Home The Marklin HO M-Track Layout of Trygve

Interesting HO scale layout project with tracks on 3 levels, featuring long main line passing via large station in the middle level and one more small station on the lower level. The track plan allows playing with both passenger and freight trains as well as many shunting/switching scenarios.

Here is what Trigve says about his layout project:

"I have been working with this compact design for a while, My goal was to utilize my old m tracks in a limited space, bulilding a really compact plan, but still advanced so that multiple trains could do different paths and visit several station areas. I am pretty satisfied with the result."

About his intention for building of this layout, he says:

"Yes, that's the plan for a time frame of approximately one year. I'm aming for a elevation system hanging from underneith the ceiling, as I don't have a room to dedicate for such an installation. Computerizing using DCC++ and maybe JMRI is also a part of the plan. My guess is that I will priorotize the electronics before landscaping."
