That website kind of sucks despite the content. Here is a video of it:

Seen his work before.  He addresses all the visual limitations of a 2' X 4' layout in a space of less than 2' X 4'.

Great little layout, plus a well-done step-by-step.

Now I kinda want to build this.  Or two:

1) Depression-era Arizona mining operation or
2) Penn Central/early CR 70s Northeast urban decay.

Let me finish my current N scale project first though!

Watching that video makes me want to build it too. But… I have a few ttrak modules that I need to finish and I want to build a couple of extension modules to my n scale Interstate RR first.

Not to take away from the op but here is another small layout that really peaks my interest. I remember finding the video when I first got back into modeling and seriously thought about the C&NW.

#2 can be generic enough for some late Pennsy..., maybe some Delaware Avenue or Washington Street?

Very nice! Does my heart good to see so much C&NW yellow and green. Was there an overall track plan of that layout posted anywhere?

That is the problem it looks so easy to whip up something like this that you just wanna do it.

I have a pdf of it somewhere. It was in one of the magazines but I don’t remember which one or what year. Pm me your email and I’ll dig it out and send it to you.
