RR-Track v5.x Layouts

BigSteam FSTO 3D

Big Steam aka Twice Around the Room.  A nice, mid-size ( 12x8 ), O-gauge layout featured in CTT November, 2014.  We present three different iterations using FasTrack, GarGraves, and Ross Custom Switches track.  As an added bonus, we also present two variations using S-gauge track from GarGraves Trackage.

RR-Track v4.x Layouts

You must have a copy of RR-Track v4 and the listed libraries to accurately view and modify these layouts

NYC Selkirk Yards:this is a somewhat compressed take on the NYC Selkirk yard using GarGraves track. Even with selective compression it still takes about 2700 track sections.

Classic Toy Trainscontest winners(11/2000). Four layouts that won prizes in the CTT layout design constest. We present them as shown in CTT.

Thrice Around the Room:the layout that should have won the CTT contest instead of those below, but didn't for reasons known only to CTT. We present several variations on this layout with different track systems and different minimum curvatures.

Our 2000 Christmas Layout

(O-gauge and standard gauge, 16' x 7', three levels [std gauge on the floor, Curtis O-gauge at 8 inches elevationi, MTH RealTrax O gauge at 16 inches elevation], 102 track sections, 29 accessories, and many objects. Note that the actual layout has a large number of additional objects and accessories (such as lights) that are not depicted on the track plan). Many of the details of the upper level reversing loop supports and village buildings and lights inside the reversing loops are not shown since we place these for visual effect.
