Modeler and layout designer David Popp walks you through the exciting world of layout design, sharing a wealth of his favorite design and planning tips along the way. As David plans an HO scale 1950s Chicago & North Western layout for a 10 x 16-foot room, he shows you where to find good prototype information, how to reduce full-sized railroading into something manageable to model, and how draw an accurate plan that can be built into a working model railroad. The DVD includes a 3D tour of the track plan, and for even more fun, you can read about this layout in Model Railroad Planning 2020.
