Default 7' x 4' Railway

Hello from the UK.

I am currently designing a new layout, with which to run the new Bachmann Thomas Range for Exhibition use in the UK. Would anyone have any track plans suitable for the amount of space based on the Island of Sodor.

I am preferably looking for a double track Main line with which to operate Gordon and so forth. If anyone could alos suggest a narrow gauge part of the layout for say with use of Skarloey etc.

I look forward to your feedback.

Welcome to AMR. What scale are you planning on building in? I am in the process of building a layout for my grandkids using Lionel O scale, 3 rail system. I have it designed to fit on a 4'x8' frame, with 2" foam on top.

This layout will be in HO/OO. As I will be using the Bachmann range of Thomas the Tank engine. Also one further question, would anyone know of a whitemetal kit for a Snowdon Mountain Railway Loco, as I would like to include a rack railway on the layout, and as Lord Harry is the engine used.

Have you got any of the original books? I had several, though I don't know where they are now. There may be scenes in the illustrations that you could base parts of the layout on.
