Hi - in the beginning of this year I had some questions here as I planned to built a little gauge one layout. As all constructions are self made, it took some time , but I will show the progress or what I have done the last year on this little shunting layout.
It is a small room but I have tried to put in what I thought was important.
Not finish, lot of details are missing.

Made a film of it with a overview and some movements.

All the best
Torstein.

Dear Torstein,

Very good job! My compliments! Would you be so kind sharing with us this wonderful track plan Layout? Which radiuses are you employing? Are you planning to realize a scheduled rail freights?
Thanks so much and best regards
Stefano

Thanks for compliments and likes.

Hi Stefano, here is the track plan(1:6) and as you see, the room size it is not big. I could run trains around the room with 1020 curved tracks but then it was no space for sidings. If I want to run longer trains I can use my Z or HO layouts so that was not the point here. I got more tracks with sidings.

All tracks are Märklin - curved track 1020 mm - controller CS3 and MS2 - buildings 3D print and wood - motor turnouts Tortoise - light 3 V.

There are no bypass here so I need 2 locomotives to handle the cars. I have different scenarios or schedules for moving cars. Smart ideas are always welcome.

It is fun to build in this scale and fun to run.

Happy new year.

Torstein

Dear Torstein,
Thank you so much for all and first of all happy new year to you too!
Your tracks plan is really interesting, especially because in this way you're allowed to do a lot of operation. I've too an H0 and Z Märklin layouts and collect Spuer1 too. The idea of 3-Ways Turnout in the middle allows you to save a lot of place. So the sidings in the upper cover a place of 100 x 310? Doesn't it? I need to build something like that! Anyway, thank you again and a lot of compliments!

Hi – some progress in this korona times….

Except from detail the layout – I wanted to try an old Maxi locomotive as I see several layouts/people use them – upgraded. I got a very cheap “glaskasten” from Ebay (as new) with a delta decoder. It run terrible so I changed the decoder to a Loksound 5. Next step was to feed the turnout frogs with current – I had prepared this before and with the Tortoise motor it was simple. Now it run properly.

On this little layout I found out I can use HO decoders as it will pull max 2 cars. The Maxi motor is a very low current consumer but for the smoke unit I use an ESU relay 51963 and current directly from track – digital control. This total project cost me less than a new HO steamer.

I wondered how I could get light in the passenger car – also an old Maxi I think – and ended up with the solution from Train-Tech, battery and activated by movement. Perfect in this case.

Current frogs mean the turnouts must be in correct positions (Short circuit) – but I must do something on a little layout.Laugh

Have fun with your layout.

All the best
Torstein

Torstein!

Serendipity is afoot! zoooctan had just asked about whether Maxi and Gauge 1 were the same, and here you have just posted the wonderful news that Maxi's can be digitized and all that!

I love it when a plan comes together.Love

This is superb. I love every small details in this layout. And it does not have to be big to make some interesting movements and pass some quality time.
