    Description:

    Truth is; no two model railroad layouts are exactly the same – and that’s a good
    thing. Each layout is unique and in its own way will have interesting and exciting
    features and details. However, all good model railroad layouts have a several
    things in common… and this all starts with plenty of well though-out planning based
    around a great theme, and practical functionality.

    Every great railroad has a unique, well-thought out, well executed theme.
    Deciding the theme is usually the starting point for any beginner. The theme will
    usually be based around an era in time; have a function for the railroad (i.e.
    moving freight, or passengers, servicing an industry etc.); depict a location; and
    reflect a specific season of year (e.g. Winter, Spring etc.).

    Although it is possible to have a mixed theme, the best model railroads are more
    specific in nature. There’s the old saying, “rules are made to be broken”, and it
    is your railroad so you can do what you want, but the best layouts stick to a theme
    for very good reasons. The e-book (above left) details lots of options and critical
    mistakes to avoid… from easy-to-fix problems, to the type that could take
    forever to solve… not to mention the added cost fixing it.

    In real life every railroad has a purpose or reason for its existence. Trains
    will operate (performing the functions required by the railroad management), in a
    logical and efficient manner. A 1960’s diesel locomotive would be out of character
    in a Wild West desert scene located alongside a snow covered forest. It just
    wouldn’t look right. That diesel locomotive would be best operated on a mainline,
    or in a rail yard, amidst a scene depicting vehicles, brick warehouse buildings
    etc. from the era. The scene could be made even more real with fine details like
    signage depicting typefaces common in the 1960’s. Little details like that can
    really add character and set a layout apart from the rest.

    The eye is not easily fooled, so little things that look out of place can spoil
    the entire scene. The wrong colors, props, structures etc. can make a scene look
    artificial. So whilst uniqueness and character is good; to be credible to the
    viewer, a scene needs to look as realistic and true to life as it can possibly
    be.

    Deciding on theme before getting started is usually the wisest move, because the
    chosen theme will help determine the most suitable scale, the type of terrain, the
    nature of the backdrop, the style of structures, and the trains that will operate
    on the layout. Determining the theme from day one can save an enormous amount of
    wasted time, money, and future frustration. After all; there’s not point in
    building something only to be disappointed with the result, and then have to modify
    it, or worse still start again from scratch.

    Not only does a model railroad need a unique theme, it also needs to function
    efficiently. This is where track planning becomes some important. The layout design
    needs to consider the size of the railroad, the space available, integration with
    wiring, the intended scenery features, and the intended functions (operations) of
    the railroad. Great layouts utilize track plans to enhance the theme of the layout,
    are practical and functional, and provide operational variety. The e-book featured
    above includes 18 unique track plans that can be used or easily
    adapted for a specific layout theme.

    I can’t stress enough the importance of functionality to the smooth operations
    of a layout. Having a well-themed layout with lots of intricate details is great,
    but the trains still need to operate smoothly without being delayed by bottlenecks,
    derailments etc. If a train can’t move around the layout without interruptions or
    problems, then it defeats the whole purpose of operating a railroad. In real life,
    railroads need to run at a profit, so no railroad would stay in business if it
    suffered constant delays or derailments. This is precisely why real railroads avoid
    overly tight turns, really steep grades, and uneven topography.

    The model railroader can avoid many of these problems with proper planning and
    maintenance. When designing a track plan: avoid tight curves, avoid S curves if
    possible; don’t run track too near the benchwork edge; avoid overly steep
    gradients, avoid turnouts inside tunnels, avoid traffic bottlenecks etc.

    Also from an operational and maintenance viewpoint: don’t make the benchwork too
    high; don’t make it too wide; avoid narrow aisles, allow ample space for scenery
    and structures; include ample crossovers or sidings, avoid cramped yard space… the
    list goes on.

    The key to having a great model railroad layout starts with the planning and
    getting the basics right. The HO/OO e-book mentioned above has a wealth of ideas and
    techniques for anyone in the hobby regardless of which scale operated, or their
    level of experience. There’s always something new to learn.

    After getting the basics right, it’s time to add the kind of realism that is
    seen on some of the best model railroads in the world. The 40 “photo-realistic”
    shipping container models are a good example of how highly detailed props can bring
    a layout to life. The level of detailing is, without exaggeration, “the best on the
    net” as these containers include rust marks, unique signage, and some even show
    refrigerated motors on the ends.

    To add even more realism, there are several clever technologies available to the
    model railroader. The red/yellow Micro-Controls e-book above explains step by step
    how to incorporate these technologies into a layout. It walks through the
    possibilities, and includes photos, diagrams, and even videos to explain several
    projects from start to finish.

    So, have a good look at these packages, because they will certainly help you
    create a truly great model railroad you’ll be incredibly proud of. This hobby is
    amazing, and definitely enjoyable, but it’s always more fun when things are well
    planned and executed. And, that doesn’t happen by accident.
