Here is what Clarence says about his layout project:

"I've been planning on building a new layout and came up with this N-scale design that emphasizes a lot of train operations. Dual track loops with passing tracks that allow up to 4 trains to operate continuous runs. It incorporates a separate switching lead that serves cattle pens, a boat dock and a chemical plant giving a wide variety of rolling stock to be handled. The main feature is the yard and roundhouse that allows the storage of cars and engines and also allows a separate operation in the yard that can create the consists for running on the loops and the switching lead. All this in a 9 foot x 3 foot 2 inch layout.

I plan on building this layout as soon as I sell my current 3x6 foot layout."
