What constitutes a "large layout"?

Recommended Posts

I don't know exact sizes, but two UK private layouts that come to mind are Pete Waterman's Leamington Spa, & John Ryan's Over Peover. They're both O Scale, & very large layouts.

Size is relative,,

Pete Waterman's O gauge layout is 160ft long

But in 4mm that would be about 92 feet ( so he easily beats my 53ft)

In 2mm that's 46ft

Down to around 15ft in T.

Or about 835ft in 7.5 gauge.

I guess this could be looked at as the largest dimension in real terms, or another way of looking at it is to judge based on scale miles of track.

 

Or how about scale acres or hectares?

I Had what could possibly considered a large layout although at the time I never considered it big. I always wanted to add more and do more so it never seemed big enough. It was loft based and was about 22ftx16ft. So I suppose that gave me 76ft or running. I say had but that is sort of a misrepresentation. I still have everything from that layout plus an awful lot more engines and stock all boxed up waiting for the time we get a bigger house. I am still waiting. I am a very patient man. But yes our house is up for sale ...... :)
