Layout Design Process

Railroad layouts require a lot of thought and effort. The Atlantic & Yadkin Railway supports a lot of layout designs. A Greensboro-centric layout would depict the yard and urban switching along the Furnace Branch with the possibility of modeling Southern mainline freights passing through. A shelf layout could either depict rural NC towards the flat farms and pine stands south of Greensboro or the rolling hills and forests with rocky streams and rivers north towards Mount Airy.

Personally, I've visited and constructed several stand alone layouts. I offer several pages here outlining my personal history with layout design and construction. In addition I document the designs and existence of A&Y themed layouts others have constructed. I hope that these layout ideas help you.

If you wish to share your layout design ideas, construction experience, or finished layout photos with me, I would be happy to add them here.
