HO SCALE: Redwood Lumber & Timber Co

This layout was originally designed for a client a few years ago. His space was more limited than what I show here, so I reworked the plan to relax the design a bit. For a small layout, it packs a lot of scenic punch. Operations consist of Shays hauling logs from the loading point at Camp #1 down to the sawmill. Non-geared locos then handle the finished lumber from the mill to the wharf for export.

Good afternoon Robert,
Any ideas as to how to get this into a 11' x 11' area? Where could we take up the space?

Hi Vinny,

This is a pretty tight plan to begin with, so I doubt very much that you can cut 2 1/2 feet from the width and get it to fit it in the space. I really have no suggestions how to manage that.

Take care,
