The designer tells more about it on the AnyRail forum: Completed Z scale track plan. Download Z: Chris Manvell, Exhibition layout H0: Jack Biermans, A large city layout Designed for Rocoline, H0 scale, this layout shows not only a wide track plan, but also has room for a city, an amusement park, and a 4-lane highway. In the hidden yard, there is room for a number of trains waiting for their turn to appear in the station. H0: Eric Consemulder, club layout With this design , Eric wants to challenge clubs to build quite a big layout. Eric tells the following story: "Earlier, in quiet times, the village of Two Bergen was not so lively.
Here's a chance to visit and see some of the best layouts the area has to offer. For track layout and design, the HO scale model train wins hands down on imagination and creativity. First, most carpet will release fibers that will get caught in your track and trains and could potentially get tangled in the moving parts. Today, we'd call them 'hybrids', since they operate as normal diesels north of Croton-Harmon, but south of there they use third-rail electric pickup for power, just like the multiple-unit commuter trains.
Sometimes a new train carriage has couplers that are not as polished as they might be, and they can catch, interrupting the smooth operation of your train and causing a derailment. During the restoration of the layout, the modules have been made into similar widths and fiddle yards added to the rear of the layout.
Members in addition receive the 'Inside Track' journal, which keeps these people informed for the latest events in the model railroading entire world. Unfortunately, as of this writing, the link to this PDF docu- ment is broken. As well as the starting point for most model railway projects, trackplans are a fascinating aspect of the hobby in their own right.

Just a word to the wise from Curgenven Forum member If, like myself, you decide to replace some of your more troublesome Hornby points with Peco ones, don't buy the better Streamline Code points with it's more gentle curves , as they won't match up to the tighter Hornby curves.
You'll need the Peco Setrack points. Problems using Peco point motors with Hornby points Basically the problems are opposite to using Hornby points with Peco track. The same fix's apply but with opposite results eg the prongs need bending in not out.
If you wish to use a Peco point motor with a Hornby point motor housing you will have to bend the end prongs closer together and bend the middle prongs flat. There is even just enough room to fit the Peco accessory switch PL which can be used to automatically change signals in the housing with the point motor. The turn around loop This loop reverses the power supply.
As you can see in the picture the positive red ends up on the negative and the negative green ends up on the positive. This would result in a short circuit. The way around this is to put in two isolating sections. You always have one open and one closed depending on the direction of the points. If the points in the picture were straight you would drive your loco in and around the loop until just before the top isolating section good idea to put a signal here which is operated by the same switch, as the isolation section note: same switch not same power supply — Not possible with all switches.
Then once the loco has stopped you change the bottom isolation switch to closed, and then the top switch to open. You also change the points to the open position. You can now drive the train out remembering that the power supply had been switched so that the direction you powered the train in with will now power the train backwards and not forward.
Note - this layout would also not work for DCC without isolating sections. What is an Isolating Section? The easiest way to create an isolated section is with points. When you close points you also break the power connection to one of the tracks and thus to any locomotives in that section of track. The second way to create an isolated section is to separate the track and use a switch to control the power crossing from one side to the other.
Hornby produce an isolation piece of track, but it is much cheaper to just separate a track section by 1mm and then wire up a switch to carry the power across.
The circuit diagram for this is pictured below. Note: - if a loco, wagon, or carriage with metal wheels sits directly on the gap, this can allow the power to cross. Electrofrogs Vs Insulfrogs This is a very basic article to explain the difference between electrofrog and insulfrog points and why you would choose one or the other.
Below is a picture of an insulfrog point.
Each blade is wired to its frog rail from underneath to carry electricity across the gap. This allows for simpler wiring of the layout.
The point can act as a switch to isolate the siding when it isn't switched in that direction. The trouble is that there is now a gap of dead track on this point. Locomotives with only four wheels or not many pickups are quite likely to come to a sudden stop here if their wheels aren't perfectly clean or if all the wheels aren't firmly on the track. All Hornby and Peco ST set track points have insulated frogs.
Peco Streamline points are available as either Insulfrog or Electrofrog. Below is a picture of a live frog point [click here for large image] On Electrofrog points the two frog rails are metal all the way to the point. This means that the locomotives wheels can pass over the frog without losing electrical contact but now we have a new problem. If the point is part of a loop or if there is a power feed on either of the tracks leading away from the frog, the frog will short the rails together.
To avoid this we have to isolate power feeds from the frog with insulating joiners. If one of the tracks is a siding with no power feed of its own we can use a normal joiner and the point will switch power to the siding the same as an Insulfrog point. So what are the advantages of using Electrofrog points? Live frog points are recommended but not essential for DCC.
What are the disadvantages of using Electrofrog points?
They cost slightly more You need some insulated joiners For Electrofrog single or double slips, you also need switches to change the polarity of the frogs. For DCC it is also recommended but also not essential that Peco Electrofrog points be modified and switches used to change the frog polarity.
DCC control has almost done away with the need for isolation sections. With DCC you can have a single siding full of locos and only the one you want to move will. In the past to run more than one train you needed a second controller and a second loop of track. If you wanted to cross from one loop to the other it involved moving the first train in to an area where it could be isolated for example in a siding before you could move the second train on the first trains loop.
