Submitted by Kebang. This is a layout I designed a few years ago and one which I actually built. It is designed to fit comfortably in an 8'x10' spare room still leaving space to open & close the door. It consists of a large dumbell loop. This loop is large enough to have 2 or 3 trains lapping continuously. There is a junction station on this dumbell loop which provides double track access to an inner loop of track. This has a reverse loop across it, providing an island platform & sidings. I treated this inner loop as a preserved line, allowing me to run any loco I liked with a clear conscience. The is also a decent terminal station contained in one of the dumbells. I've now dismantled this layout, preparing to build my next (simpler) layout. I was very pleased with the way it worked but I found it too much for one person to operate to its full potential.
