aramand Posted November 12, 2012 Share Posted November 12, 2012 Hi, So my original space for my layout is no longer available as when we converted the attic it was deemed too nice to 'mess up' with trains! So, I'm banished to what was once a bedroom! However, I'm having trouble deciding what the best option is in terms of building the baseboard shape - the room is 9ft x 8.5ft so not massive and you have to take account that there is a door opening into it. The 2 options I can think of are basically a rectangular layout of maybe 9ft x 6.5ft with a hole in the middle so I can access the back portion - something like this : or else go for an 'L-Shape' with a loop at one end and maybe long platform at the other, something like this : Ideally I'd like to have 2 full loops as large as possible and maybe add in a little elevation but I dont think I have enough space, originally I wanted a 'U-Shape' but the space is just not big enough to get the curves in to complete the loops I'm tending towards the 'L-shape' at the moment but not sure, the loop looks very small and uninteresting. I'm having terrible trouble visualising it ! Any suggestions welcome - anyone have a similar size layout where you could offer advice... Thanks, Declan.
