    Default Steve, your best bet is to

    Steve, your best bet is to purchase a back issue. N Scale Railroading has one available. See this link: <u><span style="color: #669966">https://www.nscalerailroadn.com/Backissues.html</span></u>Having someone copy and send you an article has certain copyright issues! Best not to do it!Oh yes, and welcome to nScale.net!

    Default sorry for asking

    i have no problem purchasing the back issue. That is what i was going to do. Im going to rephase my question. If someone has that issue can you tell me does the article have a picture of the track plan. I don't like buying things sight unseen. I can look at 20 pictures of this layout that is what made me think abt it. I don't want anyone mad at me so if anyone can tell me does the track plan exist in this issue. steve

    Default Looked at Bill's

    when i did a search I found Bill's web page. The same as above it shows the construction on the plan from atlas. But doing more searching i found this web sitehttp://myrrlayout.com/R/aspfiles/DetailPage.asp?Xfer_Code=70001460If u have the orginal trak plan u can see the river is different and there is a extra tunnel on the layout. What i'll do is over the weekend order the magazine. Thanks for all ur help. But i do have another question if i build a layout along a wall with no room to get behind it, what do u guys think the average reach should be. And running freight trains what would be the min radius i could get away with. Not going to be running long freight cars 40'/50'

    Default The generally accepted

    The generally accepted standard width is 24-30", depending on the owner's size. Some people are able to stretch it further and some prefer it narrower. If you put a full 48" table against the wall you will have problems getting to the back of it which is why the "four-by-eight" layout is so limiting.

    Default Yep Rail, I gotta go along with you...........

    My layout is 45 inches wide, but I can get to the back side of it. Otherwise you better have PERFECT track on the unreachable parts. Not fun to get a ladder and balance over the layout! [img]/modules/tinymce/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-yell.gif[/img]Jacko
