Collection of model railway designs

In the last few months I’ve made a col­lec­tion of mod­el rail­way designs as pos­sib­il­it­ies for a new lay­out.  Whilst I wont end up build­ing most of them I thought I’d share them here in the hope they might inspire oth­er people.

Mod­el rail­ways, like the real thing, tend to be fairly flat.  If you want ot have more com­plex lay­outs with gradi­ents you need to plan care­fully in advance, and avoid the tempta­tion to cre­ate an unreal­ist­ic (and undrive­able!) incline.

Track geometries for 00-Gauge Hornby SeTrack

Since I last mod­elled, things have changed con­sid­er­ably, with the wide avail­ab­il­ity of mod­el­ling soft­ware which allows lay­outs to be care­fully designed in advance — ensur­ing the design will fit in the space, and that the required track is avail­able.
