I have kato small curve track pieces and able to make a loop with sidings on a 13inch wide x 4ft long piece of foam, area enough for fun, anything is possible. That'd be a great layout especially if I do get back to the BN(I probably will only after I get the pre BN). I've kitbashed three PRR steamers using various Minitrix K4 boilers, tender shells, and a B6 cab.
Our display cases and racks are designed to be wall mounted but with some ingenuity they can easily be table topped or parked in recessed areas.
I have figured out what is wrong with my brain!  On the left side nothing works right, and on the right side there is nothing left!
If you don't have any rolling stock, your space could accept anything from a Z-scale empire to beautiful downtown Toonerville, complete with 4-wheel Birney, in G! KingmanDoes anyone have any ideas as to how to design an HO scale that would not take up more than half the room on a 4x8 were I can turn trains to keep them going. Of course, N scale will fit better in that space, which is why many of us moved to N scale from HO. Obviously, this sort of thing could be carried around all the walls for continuous running with a lift-out or duck-under. Gidday Kingman, NOT woes but NEW OPPORTUNITIES !!! especially starting again with a clean slate. And while perhaps getting a little ahead of ourselves when you do put a plan to paper there are some very talented people on this forum who will give you constructive criticism if required. If your space is limited, and you have HO stuff to sell to finance your next adventure, I strongly recommend you consider N scale.
While it's true that with N you can cram in more stuff and run tight curves, but if you have enough room for a snug 18" curve in HO, you have room to run a full blown passenger train with 85 foot coaches and a four coupled steamer comfortably! Consider all your options, and if the reading glasses are an issue (they sure are at my house!) then get a pair to keep on your work bench.  No big deal!!
Ok Lee thats a thought , Im going to find an N scale club around here and check out some ideas.


I've built up a collection of N scale kits, cars, track,and locos over about a 15 year period, enough to set up a moderate sized layout. So I designed this 1891 mining layout in HO for a 4 x 6 space (roughly  2 x 3 in N-scale). Just be sure to note that you cover the tracks with tape when making the center piece and allow for flanges to run through! I guess I have become a victim of my failing eyes and the promises of those marketing guys. The Heritage Proto 2000 USRA 0-8-0, which Walthers appears to be discontinuing at a bargain price (I snapped up another one recently). Each shelf weighs fractions of what they can hold inside. Our Series 1000, 2000 and 3000 can hold up to 50 pounds per shelf! I have bifocals, floaters in the eyeballs, shakey hands and what all else--and I'm still in N scale---why? There is a lot to say about any scale, but which way to go is mainly a question of space available and  funds. There was an article (IIRC MRP '09) that was about a room sized plan where the person was debating between HO and N. Athearn makes there N F45 and FP45 with sound, Precision Metal Craft makes a 4-8-2 with sound, but they can be as expensive and in some cases more expensive than an HO train with sound.
This little guy pulls long trains through any sort of trackwork you might have and will run so slowly you have to look carefully to see if it's moving or not. You have your iconoclasts who argue against it on theological grounds, and of course you need apologists who defend it on theological grounds. Because I love the detail work--I love the space saving and the fact that one can build up a large layout in a smaller area. HO scale still offers the biggest variety in equipment and accessories, but N scale is not far behind any longer.
He chose HO because he needed fewer engines (around 2-3) and fewer cars (20-30) compared to an equivalent sized (same area) N scale layout, which as he stated could use up to 35 engines and 100 or MORE cars.


I have a little bit long arms so I can reach the back of a 30" shelf at 4 feet high no problem.
The speaker is small, so sound quality and volume lack, modifications will need to be made to the chassic, possibly the body as well, and this is with longer 6-axle diesels, forget smaller 4 axles. Installing DCC should be easy, but there's not much space in the tender for the decoder, so it can call for some cutting.
Oddly enough, I don't see hollow-core door N layouts included in the 4x8 debate very often. The level of detail available in N scale is amazing when compared to the beginnings of this scale in the 1960?s. This was just freight handling too, he didn't factor in any additional cars and engines for passenger service. I know this will show some stupidity, but at one point I tacked some N track (did this with HO too) down to a shelf board laying around, set some N scale rolling stock and an engine, and came up with a 54" viewing height (chin height on me).
It would have been excellent for making me and any operators feel like they're in the layout, but veeeeeeeeery cruddy when trying to build the thing, or hand turn an engine, or rerail a derail, or pretty much every aspect of model RRing except for watching a train run around.
I need to decide if N gauge might be better yet Ive never worked with it and winder if ,it's too small in size to really enjoy because Im afraid I wont be able to see all the details in both running stock and scenery as in HO. I have checked the layout library here and find the N scale White River would fit nicely with a staging yard but I don't want to be disappointed in the size of the trains.
My problem I think is going to be space needed for radius's and I might be stuck with a shelf type if I go HO. Im getting up there in age lol , I remember Lynn Westcott and still have a few magazines from the 50's and Im getting back into this.
8 x 12, but the fact is that when you sit down and try to design a plan, an 8x10 shelf layout is quite small for HO.
