Great model railroads can come in any size. A 4'x8' sheet of plywood makes an easy starting point. You can build a variety of track layouts at any scale whether your focus is scenery, continuous running, faithful reproduction of a prototype, or switching. These plans can provide the inspiration to get you started.
The numbers in the title refer to feet. Building a layout can be a super personal thing because it totally depends on your personal preference. So on that note, lets dive straight in and have a look at a variety of different track layouts to hopefully give you some kind of idea about what you can do with your own n scale layout. This great little L-shaped N scale layout is roughly 4. This layout is designed with a Minitrix N-scale track that combines a double mainline look-alike with a small branch track, giving tons of opportunities to expand and show off your N scale trains. This layout is awesome as it shows allows for tons of extra detailing to take place, while still letting the trains take centre stage. This complete track plan features an industrial area, a small town and two independent railroad lines — one for a passenger train and another for the freight train.
Planning a model railroad can be a hobby unto itself. Many people never get beyond the design stage, afraid of not getting it right. Here lies the first secret to layout design; planning doesn't stop when construction begins.
HO or H0 is a rail transport modelling scale using a scale 3. It is the most popular scale of model railway in the world. In most English-speaking markets it is pronounced " aitch-oh " and written with the letters HO today, but in other markets remains written with the letter H and number 0 zero , so in German it is pronounced as " hah-null ".
