    Wanted to see what I could do with a 1 baseboard model railroad. Small enough be able to reasonably "finish" in a reasonable amount of time (about 6 weeks of casual tinkering).














    Don't worry about how you get from the door to the other side of the layout...

    Oh I so agree, you would can really get lots of track on one baseboard and plenty of detail too.

    I have many MR items on the DLS that are freware that you might find useful, check out my username in your CM or on the DLS.

    Wow! - That is making me change my new year's resolutions to include more time for Trainz. I think I like that more than many of the large layouts.
    Thanks for the pics and the KITA!

    Most model railroads have a simple Wooden Duck decoy sitting under the benchwork, and a soft foam header to protect "Ducker Under's" knoggens
    You have created a true Classic model railroad, what are your curve radius measurements, please ?

    Andrew --

    That looks great. Do you intend sharing on the Download Station?

    As for access under the baseboard (duck unders), I had a similar issue with the Shortz & Kerl. The solution I adopted was to place doors next to the baseboard and lower them into the floor so that the top of the door was flush with the top of the baseboard.

    What is great about Trainz model railroads, no Trainzers have actually ever split their biscuits, ducking under a model railroad platform, as we can ghost, phase, or beam right on through, any physical wooden train platforms

    Thanks all for the nice comments.
    Thanks to all the other content creators who share their work, routes, assets and techniques!
    approach_mediums YouTube videos have been helpful with techniques and learning of new assets. I like his “painted” road method. Philskene, Zsuda’s and railhead001’s work has been inspirational as well.

    Phil,
    I would be fine with uploading to the DLS but I have to admit I didn’t pay much attention to which assets I was using so there’s likely a fair amount of payware, mostly from JR I think. I totally understand frustrations with missing kuids though

    sorry, I didn’t pay much attention to curve radii other than to make them as large and gentle as space would allow. I’ll see if I can measure some curves though.. at one point I put down some 89’ auto racks in some spots and just eyeballed that the angles between cars wasn’t too ridiculous.
