Model Railroaders, I would like to see your 4×8 o gauge layouts!!!?

Sunday, July 3rd, 2011

Question by Willy B.: Model Railroaders, I would like to see your 4×8 o gauge layouts!!!?
I have a track plan in mind, but if someone can show me a better one than the one I’m thinking of, I will gladly give you 10 points!
Ok…I guess I’m gonna have to give away some of my idea. Ideally, I want to run at least two trains at a time. My idea involves an outer (possibly wider radius) oval, and inside that I’d use regular o27. The real issue is what do I do in the middle? One that I saw and liked was a 90? degree crossover, essentially making the inner oval two reversing loops. Any Ideas?
