4' by 8' railway for HO Trains
The layout pictured here is a 4' by 8' pike that has relaxed curves. It would be perfect for running medium to small locomotives, and I personally think it fine for 0-6-0 and Docksider types. Naturally, it would make a great expansion to add to an existing freight railways. The bottom affords an excellent area for interchange with a larger freight operation.
The layout uses standard HO switches, except for the upper right and the spur at lower center, which can use #4 or #6 type switches.
Here is one of many types of scenery you can use. In this scenario, the layout is a port-side operation.
