HO Track Plan

HO Layout Features

The HO layout covers an area of 3,000 square feet. There are two independent main line tracks, each 246 feet long, with 28” minimum radius curves. At scale speed, a train takes almost 4 minutes to complete the loop. A separate mountain route passes through tunnels and across bridges. An extensive network of industrial tracks serves industry spurs and sidings.
