N-scale model trains aren't my life, but they do absorb a fair chunk of my spare time and funds.
I'm planning a door layout, as a way of getting something bigger than my 2x4' plan without sacrificing portability.
I will use Atlas code-80 track for the mainline, because I've already got plenty of it (especially turnouts) and can't afford to replace it all with track that's closer to scale.
While I like watching trains roll, I'd like to have the option to operate realistically if the mood takes me. I grew up in the Midwest, where grain elevators are a part of the landscape, and covered hoppers are my favorite type of car. I'd also like to have industries that use chemical tank cars and boxcars, since I have many of those as well.
The scenery and structures should reflect the era and locale I want to model, specifically the Burlington Northern in the mid-1970's, when some rolling stock still wore the colors of the BN's fallen-flag roadnames.
I don't care about the usual "requirements" for a model railroad; I don't need a switching yard or an engine facility, and I'm not hung up on mountains and tunnels.
The layout is slightly offset to the edges of the table, to avoid the "race track" feeling. I would move the storage track parallel to the elevator tracks and adding a switch lead near where the old storage track was. I flipped the grain elevator layout and then added 3" (2 2x4 spacers) to the town side of the layout. I notice you have the Northern Power & Light structure treated like a building in a city block. If you have never built a model structure from scratch but wouldlike to give it a try, this is a good first step.

This is Plan #1 from my trackplanning page, slightly altered — I used a three-way turnout on the upper level. I've built at least half a dozen small layouts in the past, so the basics of tracklaying, wiring, and scenery pose no difficulties for me. The long white object is a grain elevator, which is the layout's biggest industry and which doubles as a scenic divider. I've run all my equipment on them, and everything works without binding or derailing; a larger radius would shorten the main line and reduce the number of staging tracks, so the tight curves are worth it to me. I currently have an N scale layout using Atlas code 80 track and measuring 36 x 80, which is approx. I would try to have the "town side" have one more cross over, as it stands now you have to go to the next town to cross over on the main. I just have one worry, on the elevator side, How are you going to get the cars out of the storage track? Please be aware that these are true CRAFTSMAN KITS and include basic lumber and instructions.

I consider myself an intermediate-level modeler, with little interest in achieving perfection down to the last rivet. The photo isn't the best quality, but it does show what even rudimentary scenery can do to improve a simple 2x4' layout. On the left are an as-yet-undefined industry (DPM Gripp's Luggage) and a team track (a concrete loading dock).
All mainline turnouts are "eased" with a segment of 19" curve, to prevent point-picking and other anti-social behavior. Of an older design, at some time in its' history it was covered with corrugated metal to protect it from fire. This double track sanding tower can service two engines a one time, great for those busy yards. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. My greatest joy in the hobby is watching people's faces light up as they watch the trains, especially children. I'm using "glueshell" scenery, as described by Leon Honings in the Sept 1995 issue of Model Railroader, with Woodland Scenics turf and ballast.
On the right is a busy chemical works (Green Max kits and Kibri tank-car loading facility).
Kit contains color coded scale lumber, cast spouts and counter balances, die cut floor and roof, roofing material, sand, templates, and scale drawings, and complete easy to follow instructions. The factory with the smokestack is a Model Power kit, the brick building (a feed mill) on the top level is made from DPM wall sections, and the silver grain elevator is scratchbuilt. My long term plan is to build a railroad with a larger footprint than this 36 x 80 that I have limited myself to.
Until our concrete floor is replaced in our 80-year-old basement, I'm not going there.A new 36 x 80 layout plan that I have developed will loosely follow a double track mainline (which was priority number one for this layout) in Kansas with the transport of grain as a focus.
I plan to use Atlas Code 55 for the first time with cork and plywood base.Below is my current version of the layout, and I'm looking for any helpful hints that can better the plan.
The interchange track provides me the ability to add a staging yard in the future (which I doubt will ever happen). Anyways, please give it a look and please let me know of any changes to the layout that you might make.
