I spent the last seven years in a bungalow where I didn’t have room for an O gauge model railroad layout. Prototype railroads, such as the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe chose their routes to use the least amount of track to serve the greatest number of customers. This was always a concern for prototype railroads, who searched for the best possible route that would use the least possible track and serve the most possible customers.
First in a long line of decision in building an O gauge model railroad layout: Where to put it? To assist with the decision-making process, I looked at classic and new layout plans, trying to find one that just begs for one space over the other. It’s almost a certainty that a published plan must be adapted to the space available. Last, but not least, I would like one of the continuous loops to have 72” curves, to run my scale 80-foot passenger cars.


That’s a lot to ask for a model railroad layout that must fit in a spare bedroom, or the slightly larger spare garage stall. There are many other decisions to make along the way to building a model railroad layout, such as the style of layout table construction and the track system to use, but those can come after we decide on a location. The model Missouri Central Railroad is actually an HO scale model railroad layout in my basement. Due to time and basement space constraints, the layout has not physically grown past its small borders yet. Like most model railroaders, I have far more railroad locomotives and cars than will fit on the layout at once.

So you must look at published model railroad layout plan not as the finish point, but the starting point of creating your own pike. I look for features I am interested in recreating, and how I can increase or decrease the plan to fit the space I have. As the process continues, I may have to give up some of the items on my wish list, so I will have to prioritize them.
I even built a little platform from 1×4 lumber and plywood to keep the trains out of the reach of excited toes that might kick them over whilst decorating the tree.
For possible locations, I have narrowed it down to two sites: the third garage stall, or one of the spare bedrooms.
