These 11 HO and N scale track plans prove that there's always room for a model railroad. Taken from the pages of Model Railroader and Model Railroad Planning these plans show how all you need for benchwork is a narrow shelf or bookcase. You learn how to build the Clinch River coal railroad in N scale, get ideas for modeling industries in a tight space, find plans for two busy waterfront railroads, and see a plan that doubles as a challenging switching puzzle. (22 pages, 2.6 MB)
