Classic O Gauge Track Plan

By November 13, 2012

Follow me on:

While much of the emphasis today is on prototype modeling and around-the-walls track plans, there is still a great deal of interest in the classic "toy train" platform. And it's no wonder - these things are just a lot of fun!

For many, the primary goal of any trackplan is to pack as much action into a platform as possible. The more loops, the more lighted and animanted accessories the better! And what you can't fill with motion can be packed with more trains on display.

This latest plan does just that. With three operating loops and a yard, there is still plenty of room for more animation and lighting in the spaces in between. Despite all the action however, curves on the outer two loops were kept large. Large enough in fact that the outer loop will accomodate any 3-rail O Gauge locomotive on the market today.

So if you're looking for a dynamic platform, you may want to give this plan a look!
