HO SCALE: Sweet Tooth Bakery & Milling Co

This is an HO Scale track plan I did for a client back in October of 2020. The footprint is 14x72 inches and the owner wanted a single industry layout with as many car spots as possible. He left the choice of the industry up to me, but he wanted to shuffle around covered hoppers and box cars, and possibly tank cars. I decided on depicting a bakery since I haven't done one in this level a detail before. The resulting track plan has 10 car spots within the industry plus both a storage and sorting track. To make it all work, a drop down cassette would need to be added to the left end. The one I show is 36-inches long. Along with the car spots marked, the bakery would also receive an occasional load of propane.

have to say im not a big fan of the yellow but once again you have packed alot into the footprint. i love the purely single industrial layout that are reasonably sized for a small room.

LOL ... yeah Ivan apparently you're not alone with the assessment of the yellow used for the structure ... but my client picked the colour ... he wanted something bright ... maybe we should have called it the "Sunshine Bakery"
