Curious as to what people thought of the Passenger Operations layout plan in January's MR? While it was nice to see with passenger operation, the layout presented had a little too much track crammed into too little a space - for my taste. I enjoyed the article and layout, and it comes at a great time for me, because I'm designing for passenger operations with my extension room layout that I will start building soon. There were a number of problems with this layout, access and clearances among the more noticeable. Newcomers to model railroading or to layout design may not notice the areas where improvements should be made, both to the physical plant and the operations concept.
I also feel that a prize winning design should certainly be up to snuff in all of those areas. I did like how much layout was squeezed into a narrow room with the lower level staging, etc. Byron educated (more than 2 years ago) me to the fact (with my own chosen, published track plan) that a lot of magazine layout designs are not to scale, have overly optimistic turn out configurations, unrealistic grades, etc. It's quite possible to design passenger-oriented operating layouts for longer, narrower spaces. In some cases, it may make sense to optimize length-of-run and number of stations with multiple laps around the room. It's interesting you all mention having suggestions for tweaking the plan, the article does mention alternatives for sqwitch placements for the staging yard. The trackplan itself is reasonably realistic in my opinion and experience, although I would definitely eliminate that first station in the upper left corner of the trackplan. Our 15th project railroad has a number of differences from our previous model railroad layouts.


Purpose – a small switching layout for display and operation at Train Shows and other events. Although there are lots of good track planning programs available, I prefer to design small layouts using actual track pieces laid out at the final size of the railroad. Small structures were selected for the front to not block the view of the tracks or the buildings in the back.
This layout will go to Train Shows so that the public can run it – learn about operation, switch cars, see how it was built, and ask questions.
DCC control was selected for the layout as we can demonstrate how it works, and allows the public to learn and experience what DCC does hands-on.
Make sure to check out the close-up photos of each of the Buildings and Structures on the Gateway Central XV. If you would like to build a railroad like this one, please see the Track Plan and Parts Lists for the home version Gateway Central XV. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. My modeled branch had no passenger service in the era I model, not so much as a rail bus or a combine tacked on the end of a freight train. Designing a passenger-oriented layout in a modest space involves prioritizing among these interests (along with any desired freight ops), and then designing the layout to suit. Because of a lack of focus, most published plans do a poor job of providing the infrastructure for engaging and realistic passenger operations, IMHO. The other project railroads were given away each year, we plan to keep this one (at least for a few years). This helps the planning considerably, since I have a tendency to pack as much railroad as possible into the space.
The front structures were placed at the corners leaving the middle open to reach in to throw the turnouts and uncouple cars. We even plan on using it for switching contests – four cars on the layout is fairly easy, six or seven cars gets very interesting. The engine has a SoundTraxx (sound) decoder installed so visitors can ring the bell and blow the whistle.

I do recognize that it's a tricky line to walk, informing readers without disappointing or upsetting authors.


A completely unnecessary situation and one that should never have passed an editor's perusal.
The other project railroads had a loop in the plan so the trains could go round and round, this one is purely a switching layout and doesn’t have a continuous running option.
Some were too complex to switch for the average person walking up at a Train Show (the idea, after all, is to have fun with the layout). I also like to mock-up the buildings using parts from the kit taped together to make sure they look appropriate and will fit in the space available (photocopies of the wall sections taped together would work as well). The background structures line the rear edge of the layout, with the largest in the middle. This is obviously overkill for a home layout, but great for a layout that travels around and is occasionally dropped. An entry-level Digitrax Zephyr (DCS 50) throttle was selected which connects with two wires to the layout.
In fact just got my lower level's main line up and running (finally!) just last night, two years in!
And this one was designed to be really small, so it will sit on a table at train shows and easily move in the back seat of any car. The final design features five industrial structures, six car setout spots, and six #4 turnouts – and with some construction, operation and parts selection tricks made it in at just shy of four feet in length.
The two back corners required kitbashed structures to suit the locations, but the structures selected are easy to customize this way.
Our Train Show version weighs just over 13 pounds and has a handle on back to carry it around. The track was also attached with carpenter’s glue (just make sure not to put any under the moving parts of the turnouts). If you want to build a version of this railroad for a home layout, I would recommend the slightly longer (and easier to operate and build) version shown on the track plan page.
