    The N-scale Cheshire Rail track plan is based on the early plan for John Allen’s famous Gorre & Daphetid. I greatly admire Mr. Allen and his G&D. It's a twice around design, and the main line run on my N-scale version is about 19 feet. During each circuit of the main line, trains disappear twice into tunnels that run along the back of the layout, under the town of Troy. The layout measures 30 x 48 inches.

    The track is Atlas code 55. It is mainly flex track, with a few pieces of Atlas code 55 sectional track. Turnouts are Atlas #5 and #7, plus one #3.5 Wye for variety. I originally wanted to use a couple of Atlas code 55 curved turnouts, but when they were delayed well past their expected delivery date, I became impatient and revised the plan to eliminate the curved turnouts.

    The layout is set in the area of Keene and Troy, New Hampshire.
