Great looking layout, Eddie. Thanks for starting the thread. It's always nice to see what others have done and draw inspiration not only from the modeling, but from the construction as well. For those who don't remember, here are a couple of overview shots of the L&WS.



As you can see, I have a very small, less than 10' x 10', so my trackplan isn't as linear as I would like, but it does provide a lot of operating fun. Since these shots were taken, I've rearranged some of the structures for better viewing.

Layouts look even better when you get to see all of it in one photo.

Steve,
A couple of questions about yours which I am sure you have mentioned but I do not remember the answers.

How thick is the foam and what are you using for roadbed.
Also how did you mount the switch machine on the foam.
I am going to be doing something similar.

Hello all,

Here is an overall shot of my layout. I do have to admit that right-of-way trackage is at a premium.

Boy I sure hope I don't get in trouble with Mike or Joe for hogging up all the bandwidth with this photo!




I realize those without this much room for a layout will be jealous, but let em' eat cake!

Tyson, how do you keep the trains on the tracks with the layout hung on a wall like that?

Tyson,
My neck popped out when I bent my head to view your layout. Now I have to visit my friendly Chiro.
