Project idea: micro model railroads

Posted By on August 10, 2010

Micro Layouts are small model railroads and are a sub-genre of model railroading that lends itself well to small bite-size projects. Small Layout Scrapbook has been around for many years and is a great source for these layouts.

They present great opportunities to make dramatic scenes. This is a small mining layout that can be found at the Small Layout Scrapbook called Draversaz built in 1:48 “O” scale and is only 24 x 18 inches in size.

Picture 005 One of our students, built this micro layout for his project a couple years ago. We ended up making it 11 x 41 inches in size and it is HO scale with a small trestle and a tunnel. More about this project can be found here.
