HO SCALE: 4' x 8' Branchline with Intetchange

This layout was designed back in February of 2014 for a client who wanted a layout done on a standard sheet of 4x8 plywood. I was surprised when he said that he wanted to focus more on operations than running a train around a loop. He was also quite adamant that he didn't want any grades, water or bridges. My first step was to look online for some other 4x8 plans, and I found one that this design is based on. I did simplify the mainline and interchange tracks a bit and also added a bit more switching opportunities. I also added the tree ridge to separate the layout into 2 distinct scenes. I think it would be fun to operate while providing some room for scenery and structures.
