Peco Track Plan 2 (Size 1.6m x 1.3m)
This plan allows for a basic oval, ideal for a new starter in the hobby, with a branch line attached with scope for sidings and station loop. The sidings to the right of the right of the layout can be two simple storage sidings or a terminus station, and can, of course, be lengthened to suit your requirements. The branch to the left allows for storage of locomotives or a working yard giving the operator plenty of scope for shunting operations. With plenty of choices available to the designer, this plan is an ideal starter plan which offers much in terms of further expansion plans.
The red sections of track indicate where we suggest that you add power access to the track. In DC Analogue operation, with careful use of isolated sections, it is possible to have three locomotives running at the same time, giving plenty of operational activity.
With the further addition of some well placed backscenes and tunnel entrances, the user can create an interesting layout with trains appearing and disappearing from sight just like the real thing.
