I'm not sure where to post this.

If you like layouts with tight radius turnouts and curves, check out the American Railcar Industries facility on Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/wpgrxmaQ2Ny

American Railcar Industries
901 Jones Rd
Paragould, AR 72450

3650x1200 feet is ~ 23x7.5 feet in N, if you built the whole place to 100% scale  :ashat: 

(Seems like a pretty big door) :D

Really? and everyone is using prototypical 2 degree radius curves on their home layouts? Which by the way in HO scale is 394" radius curve.

I think I recall seeing someone posting that previously on TRW.  Pretty cool.

Perhaps you're recalling the thread that Blazeman posted about the Bombardier plant in Thunder Bay.
