Model Train Layouts & Track Plans
Home Atlas 4x8 Industrial Track Plan #5
Yet another simple 4x8 track plan in O-gauge, designed with Atlas Industrial track pieces. The layout features oval main line with pass-over track (station) at the left part, 4-track yard in the center and one more branch for some industry in the right part.

This layout design is suitable for children and beginners with limited space. It may be built as permanent layout or like dismountable (temporary) setup on the floor. The track plan allows continuous running of short trains as well as various switching operations.
Note: The original track plan uses Atlas O-scale industrial tracks and switches with built-in roadbed. Because TL and TR switches were never got produced, you can replace them with O-36 LT and RT switches (#6075 and #6076) with added-on roadbed (#66075 and #66076). You can do the same for all other tracks in the plan and replace the industrial tracks with the regular O-scale Atlas 3-rail tracks.
