HO SCALE: Sydney Steel Corporation (SYSCO) at Sydney, Nova Scotia

The owner of this layout liked my plan for the Dominion Steel & Coal Corporation (DOSCO) in the 1950s, which was presented earlier on this blog (see this link). However, he wanted the era shifted to the 1980s, when the mill was owned by the Sydney Steel Corporation (SYSCO), and he also needed the plan adapted to fit...

HO SCALE: Rearden Metal Products, Inc

Back in October of 2019, a new member of the Micro/Small Model RR Layouts Facebook group shared his first post outlining his plans to enhance his programming track module by including an electric arc furnace steel mill within the 24x72-inch space. I felt member could use the space much better than his concept drawing depicted, so I decided to mock up...

O SCALE: Pickering Valley Feed & Farm Supply Co.

I was asked by member of the Micro/Small Layout group to offer some suggestions for an 20x72-inch extension off his existing circa late 1950's O-scale layout. He wanted to keep trackage to a minimum with an industry suitable for Pennsylvania , southern New York, or West Virginia that was served by box cars and flat cars....

On18 SCALE: Fugere Manufacturing & Fabrication, Limited (Concept Drawing)

Late last year, a member of the Micro/Small Model RR Layout group was discussing building a layout in On18 scale. Since I had never designed in that scale before, I contacted him about designing a layout in a small space using either a sector plate, or a transverse table. While trying to decide what I was going to do in the scale, I came...

HO SCALE: Hamilton Feeds (Hamilton, MI)

This is a layout based on an actually prototype industry located in the small town of Hamilton, Michigan. It was Marshall Stull (owner of the Small Model Railroads website) that brought the site to my attention. He thought it would make a nice prototype based small layout, and wanted to see what I could do with it.

HO SCALE: Mountenay Manufacturing Company

This is a HO-scale industrial complex that I just completed for a member of the Micro/Small Model RR Layouts in a 40x50-inch foot print. The track plan really had an easy button on it since I have done a few "industries in a corner" in the past. It was actually inspired by a modified and flipped version of a manufacturing company I did...

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...
