Laying model railroad track is perhaps the most fun part of the hobby for me a€“ right next to building scenery and running trains.
You may have to use small pieces of wood underneath the railroad ties on the adjoining end of the code 55 track so that the rails of the code 55 track will line up properly with those of the code 83 track.
When arranging curves for your model railroad track, make sure your radius is not too small for the size trains you will be running. After you have laid your model railroad track, you may wish to paint it to achieve a more realistic appearance. Discovery Plastics has a black Volkswagen parked out front and a Continental Mark II on the side - with a mechanic working under it. Behind it is a '56 blue and white Ford Fairlane, a mostly-hidden forklift carrying a 4'x8' sheet of masked Plexiglas and a Divco van from Dugan's Bakeries.
In 2006, I purchased a set of five MTH Congressional-style cars in ribbed silver with Tuscan stripe and 'Pennsylvania' in gold letters.
Well, put the famework together this weekend, here's some pictures of the progress so far. In my experience, kids that age prefer something they can mess around with themselves, like Brio. Even if the layout is primarily for you, this is not a plan I would suggest for someone new to the hobby. No, they are all curved crossings, tricky to build and their placement across the yard is completely impractical, IMHO. If it were my choice, I'd first give the son something else that the two of you could play with together (Brio, LEGO, et al).

The actual title of the book is 48 Top Notch Track Plans (from Model Railroader Magazine). You may be having trouble laying this out partly because it does not appear to have been designed for commercial turnouts. If you are planning to scale this down proportionally for N scale, I have doubts about it working in the same relative space. I hate to say it, but unless you can talk someone into doing it for you, you will probably be better off learning XtrkCAD and working it out for yourself. Ads like these, plastered on available wall space, were a common sight in the 1940s and 1950s. A white and green PTC GM 'fishbowl' bus can be seen at the right, near the PTC information booth.
On the next level, the Pennsy Aerotrain emerges from the tunnel - making a station stop, while the ascending PRR freight consist, pulled by EMD diesel, enters the tunnel - squeezing past a PRR maintenance van.
The 22" minimum radius helix in HO would be an operational challenge, access is a problem, there are a number of custom crossings and turnouts required, etc. Unless you are comfortable building and maintaining track from inside a 20" diameter tube, there will be construction challenges. In fact, if you get any paint on the top, you should wipe it off right away to prevent electrical conduction problems when you run your trains. Q - Which kind of paint should I use to not interrupt the current (with the DCC signal) flowing in the rails? A - You can use any kind of paint you wish as long as you don't get any on the top of the rails. He's trying to cram too much into too little space, and the shortcuts and compromises overwhelm the good stuff, IMHO. Or turn it over to your son at some point when he's a bit older and you build your next layout.

I found it was easy recently to use a paint marker that I bought in a hobby store to paint the ties and the rails. And there is really no staging in this plan, at least the way most people define and use staging.
That plan fits on a hollow-core door (great starter size for N scale, IMHO), has some real staging (if short), the option for some reasonable operation, etc. Vondrak's fondness for arcane switching puzzles makes itself evident in a number of locations, as well. Although it doesn't have a turntable, one could be easily added where the tie treatment plant is located now. One example is where the crew must back their engine into the coal mine to switch an interchange track*. The lower deck is a little better than the upper deck, which seems a bit of an afterthought. In other words, your track should go into the curve gradually using a greater radius before you get to the lesser (tighter) radius, then back to the greater radius again, before straightening out.
Then lift the track off the layout, and glue down one of the A? strips with the inner edge lined up along the dots.
