The 2 rail layout is squeezed into a 6 1/2 by 11 foot space around the furnace and water heater. It is sectional and can be moved for access to the utilities by removing a few bolts. Its width varies from 9 inches to 15 inches.
Track plan as it appeared in O Gauge Railroading Magazine Run 227 (Feb - Mar 2008).
The layout is 48 inches from the floor. This higher than usual viewing angle, combined with the backdrops, limits an observer's view and makes the layout appear a lot bigger than it really is. The train actually seems to go "away" as it makes its way around to the other side of the layout.
The layout represents a rural branch line with a weed covered right of way.
This layout was featured as the cover story in the Feb-Mar 2008 issue (Run 227) of "O Gauge Railroading" magazine.
