    Default N scale layout in NYC

    Just wanted to share my layout. I built it in Brooklyn over a fireplace. It extended there on 4" shelves to go around the whole apartment. Now its in Queens over my desk. I run a subway (to simulate MTA but its Japanese) and a freight train. 2ft by 5ft. Very simple DC operation but very relaxing as I sit at my desk.

    The three levels is really nice!
    Just another n-scaler.

    Love how the lights in the subway cars flicker. Too bad there aren't many N scale US subway sets available. If you ever wanted to though, you can get MTA prototype shells on Shapeways: https://www.shapeways.com/product/GA...li=marketplace

    Thanks for sharing the video....I'm originally from Queens myself and seeing the subway running reminded me of trips on the "EL" to Brighton Beach to spend time with the grandparents
