Don's Plan

Don and Jim secure a door frame as Doug, Ron, Matt and Tom look on.

Don is no stranger to designing a model railroad, having a few under his belt already. His own layout, The Ontario Western, has all the basic ideas we wanted in our plan. So it was not much of a surprise when he stepped up and unveiled his idea for the foot print of our new layout. Thanks Don, now let's start building. Don's table plan allows the operator to follow their train as it traverses the layout, a highly desired concept. It also allowed us to put a wall aroung the layout, with a door at each end, thus securing the space, just another benefit of a great plan. The plan incorporated a table width of about thirty inches (OK we forgot about the width of the two by four walls) for all of the layout except the main city and the branch line, which are two feet.

The walls are up.
