Model Train Layouts & Track Plans

Home The N-scale Table Layout Proposal of Albert

Fascinating proposal for a compact multi-level N-scale layout, intended to be built on a square-shaped table.


Scale & Size
Scale: N (1/160)
Size: Very Small
Dimen­sions: 106cm x 106cm; 42" x 42"; 3.5′ x 3.5′
Area: 1.12m2; 1.34yd2
Time & Theme
Epoch/Era: II, III / Steam, Transition
Season: Spring/Summer
Theme: Fictional
Location: Europe
Scene: Country/Village, Mountain
Tracks & Route
Trackage: Trix N Minitrix
Type: Closed Route
Line: Mixed, with Junction/​Meeting Station(s)
Min. radius: 195mm; 7.7" (R1)
Max. grade: 4%
Turnout angles: 15°, 24°, 30°
Features & Control
Traffic: Passenger, Freight, Shunting/Switching
Power supply: DCC
Turnouts: Electric
Uncoupling: Manual


The track plan has two junction/meeting stations and two lines – one line on the base level connecting the front station with a hidden station at the back and one more line, which is climbing to the station on the upper level and then going down via many bridges and tunnels. As the layout is quite compact, it uses curves with the smallest Trix radius (R1 - 195mm / 7.7") and allows only short trains with small engines to be operated on it.

Here is what Albert says about his layout project:

"In a Youtube video, I saw a table with a scale of 100x100 cm N. I made my own version based on this, but 105X105 cm or another one now only has to be built 🙂 . It was created with SCARM. Some of the houses are based on the public part of SCARM, the rest are their own work. The locomotives and wagons are also SCARM based or self-employed."
