Hello,

I wanted to ask the experts. As a young one, I have a 4'x8' HO layout, it has long left me, and with it, a 4 x 8 chunk of my heart. So now at 31 yo, I want it back.

I do not have the room I had before, so I am looking at N scale. I want to know if someone can point out a heavt town base layouy. I LOVE to build buildings and town. Heck, the train is almost secondary to me.

So if someone knows a resource for a 8 x 8 ish or even 10 x 10 ish with lots of structures please pont me that way.

I am glad I found this forum :)

happierr,

This link will bring you to a review of a book on urban modeling by John Pryke. It is a great source of information on this topic.

http://www.trainsarefun.com/urbanmodeling/cityscenery.htm

Also, you might want to visit the website of the New England, Berkshire, & Western RR located at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. They have some excellent pictures of urban modeling.

http://railroad.union.rpi.edu/index.asp

Go to the Photo Gallery part of their website and look around.

I hope that this helps.

Pat,

Thanks for the heads-up. I have fixed the link.

I belonged to the RPI site for about 3-months. It turned out that I was very busy at work then, and rarely got a chance to visit the site. Membership allows you access to the on-line modeling articles, etc. that would be of interest. I will probably join for another 3-month period when I retire, and download those tips.

The Photo Gallery is free, and is a terrific resource.

On my dead computer I had a links to a number of sites that had layouts for small spaces. Let me see if I can find them again.
