Still doodling track plans for the space I have allotted me, and I came up with one adapted from a plan from Iain Rice's book "Shelf Layouts for Model Railroads". It's an HO plan called "The Small Town on the Prairie", and it's designed to fit an 8x12 room. Since my space is 2 feet narrower and 6 inches shorter, I did a little fiddling & finagling, and came up with this: Scale-HO Space- 6x11 1/2 feet Track- code 83, with code 70 in sidings & spurs Track height- 54" above floor Minimum radius- 24" main, 22" sidings & spurs Location- southern Kansas Era- mid-1970s Railroad- St. Louis-San Francisco Ry. secondary main line Grade- 0% Scenery- typical of Kansas Prairie area, farmland Turnouts- manual control Power- standard DC, but considering DCC Trains- locals, one through freight This is not a final plan by any means- if I get good enough suggestions, I may use them.
