Size of your layout?
Posted 30 December 2009 - 09:09 PM
Ok, I lied. Not sure how to make a poll function...So we will do a makeshift poll!
What is the size/shape of your train/city layout?
Mine is a smallish "L" shaped table with the main part being 4'x8' and the lip being 2'x4', which makes a nice switchyard off on the side.
I'm just curious as I've seen whole room setups and also 3 1/2' x 8 foot layouts.

So rather than building Lego, I'm building furniture to store lego on!
Soon, though, I intend to rebuild my layout and get many of my sets out from storage. The initial layout will be 4x8 foot (the size of one sheet of ply :) ).

It's in my son's room, that explains the Hot-wheels mural in the background...

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”

To explain this, I just got some more train track for Christmas.
You should also see the trains I have on there, of course my Emerald Night, and a creation of mine, a GWR "Hall" Class

I don't have any stright track. Yet - I'll be buying the crossing when it comes out and using that and placing my loco/stock on the crossing.
Want to see more photos? See my Flikr!

However, it lets me run 4 of my 8 trains at any given time, and the other 4 are all in sidings that can be switched easily. I aim for layouts that mean I can keep all 8 trains (5 x 12v and 3 x 9v) on the layout. There's a folder of pics on Brickshelf here. The bottom two levels are 12v and linked by a ramp/incline. On the diagram the bottom level is blue simply to keep it visible!
It's very much a work in progress, though progress has slowed at the moment.

Hopefully, by the end of the year we'll have the attic cleaned out for me. I'd be working on that now, but my younger brother is also claiming that space, so I'm giving him until his birthday (2 months) to get crackin', or I will. Anyway, I intend to set up a semi-permanent layout up there.
Probably a main L-shape, with perhaps a shunting yard connected to it, track-pieces and room permitting.

I've designed the different train track inside the main big-circle; with this layout you can drive at the same time 6 trains, with 3 different transformers.
On the deadend track I've parked other 5 trains
