Welcome to the group (and I might add, where in NJ is Ocean Grove, as I grew up in south Jersey between Philly and Atlantic City). I am not aware off the top of my head of any layout plans but I can promise you this, someone in this group (or a lot of someones) will certainly step in to help you. My present layout is about 14 X 18 with some branch extensions but it is ever evolving. Its modelled after the N&W in 1953 or so, and really is geared towards the North Carolina Branch which ran from Pulaski to Galax, with some mainline coal and freight and passenger service to make it entertaining.

Subject: HO Layout

I am new to this list and I am new to modeling too. My son is nine years old and has wanted to build a train layout for years. He recently came to me and said he wants to build a layout after the N&W. Why this line I asked him, 'Because he loves the steam locomotives in O. Winston Links photographs'. OK, that impressed me. Anyway, I have cleared out our basement and we have space for an HO layout approximately 11'x14'. I was thinking that a u-shaped benchwork with a 3' center walk-space would be nice. My question is does anyone out there have layout plans that are based on a branch line of the N&W?

We are still reading about the different areas and such and are just at the planning stage but if I could find some ideas that have already been worked out it would be a help.

Thanks so much,
