These layouts use the Railtech - Pilz type of track. Along with regular switches, the track system includes left and right curve switches and a double-slip crossover switch. That's right - a four-way switch! These layouts were designed as possible plans for display and operating layouts that I might build here. Most are designed for tight spaces. At least one of these will become a full-fledged layout with scenery, operations, etc. (That will be shown on this website upon completion.)

This is a layout for 3' by 5'. It features good switching. (12) Pilz #83109 TT-gauge R-310 30° curve (19) Pilz #83101 TT-gauge 166mm straight (3) Pilz #83312 TT-gauge leftthand #4 turnout (4) Pilz #83110 TT-gauge R-310 15° curve (3) Pilz #83311 TT-gauge righthand #4 turnout (4) Pilz #83102 TT-gauge 83mm straight (2) Pilz #83104 TT-gauge 36mm straight Total of 47 items |
We have expanded the layout, adding a spur and sidings (13) Pilz #83109 TT-gauge R-310 30° curve (25) Pilz #83101 TT-gauge 166mm straight (5) Pilz #83312 TT-gauge leftthand #4 turnout (4) Pilz #83311 TT-gauge righthand #4 turnout (6) Pilz #83102 TT-gauge 83mm straight (4) Pilz #83110 TT-gauge R-310 15° curve (3) Pilz #83104 TT-gauge 36mm straight Total of 60 items |

By adding about 8' width, we can add an entire spur with sidings. (14) Pilz #83109 TT-gauge R-310 30° curve (36) Pilz #83101 TT-gauge 166mm straight (7) Pilz #83312 TT-gauge leftthand #4 turnout (5) Pilz #83311 TT-gauge righthand #4 turnout (11) Pilz #83102 TT-gauge 83mm straight (10) Pilz #83110 TT-gauge R-310 15° curve (4) Pilz #83104 TT-gauge 36mm straight (1) Pilz #83362 TT-gauge lefthand #4 curved turnout (1) Pilz #83361 TT-gauge righthand #4 curved turnout (1) Pilz #83105 TT-gauge 43mm straight Total of 90 items |
This 3' by 5' layout features a grade from the bridge up the mountain. Great for logging or mining pikes! (23) Pilz #83101 TT-gauge 166mm straight (20) Pilz #83109 TT-gauge R-310 30° curve (3) Pilz #83311 TT-gauge righthand #4 turnout (4) Pilz #83110 TT-gauge R-310 15° curve (5) Pilz #83102 TT-gauge 83mm straight (1) Pilz #83362 TT-gauge lefthand #4 curved turnout (2) Pilz #83361 TT-gauge righthand #4 curved turnout (3) Pilz #83105 TT-gauge 43mm straight Total of 61 items |

From the switch at top center, a grade would rise until it crossed the line via a bridge. Note the switchback-style action on the top of the grade. (35) Pilz #83101 TT-gauge 166mm straight (10) Pilz #83109 TT-gauge R-310 30° curve (1) Pilz #83311 TT-gauge righthand #4 turnout (4) Pilz #83312 TT-gauge leftthand #4 turnout (2) Pilz #83110 TT-gauge R-310 15° curve (3) Pilz #83102 TT-gauge 83mm straight (3) Pilz #83106 TT-gauge R-353 30° curve (2) Pilz #83361 TT-gauge righthand #4 curved turnout (7) Pilz #83100 track bumper Total of 67 items |
Simple 2' 8" by 5' point-to-point railway is a good starter than can be expanded. (13) Pilz #83109 TT-gauge R-310 30° curve (17) Pilz #83101 TT-gauge 166mm straight (2) Pilz #83312 TT-gauge leftthand #4 turnout (1) Pilz #83311 TT-gauge righthand #4 turnout (1) Pilz #83110 TT-gauge R-310 15° curve (3) Pilz #83102 TT-gauge 83mm straight Total of 37 items |

Another point to point, with grade rising from top left. Nice mountain-type logging, mining or even tourist operation. (18) Pilz #83101 TT-gauge 166mm straight (13) Pilz #83109 TT-gauge R-310 30° curve (2) Pilz #83361 TT-gauge righthand #4 curved turnout (2) Pilz #83110 TT-gauge R-310 15° curve (4) Pilz #83102 TT-gauge 83mm straight (2) Pilz #83312 TT-gauge leftthand #4 turnout (1) Pilz #83104 TT-gauge 36mm straight Total of 42 items |
Expansion - a 3' by 5' addition connects out spur line with a mainline pike. (43) Pilz #83101 TT-gauge 166mm straight (25) Pilz #83109 TT-gauge R-310 30° curve (3) Pilz #83361 TT-gauge righthand #4 curved turnout (7) Pilz #83110 TT-gauge R-310 15° curve (8) Pilz #83102 TT-gauge 83mm straight (5) Pilz #83312 TT-gauge leftthand #4 turnout (3) Pilz #83104 TT-gauge 36mm straight (4) Pilz #83311 TT-gauge righthand #4 turnout (5) Pilz #83106 TT-gauge R-353 30° curve (1) Pilz #83107 TT-gauge R-353 15° curve (1) Pilz #83103 TT-gauge 41.5mm straight (1) Pilz #83105 TT-gauge 43mm straight Total of 106 items |
