Light Rail Layout

Recommended Posts

Paroan24

I finally got my light rail city layout plan in place.Tested everything and working perfect.  Now working on building the city.  Finished the upper level so now have to start working on the main level which is much larger.

Wow that's going to be a massive light rail layout! Is it all going to be urban buildings?

Jeff,  Most will be urban city streets but there will be a section for Industrial buildings.  I love the light rail system that runs downtown in Kansas City so am expanding on that.

Now that the upper level is done I am playing with the main downtown area to see which building should go where. Will probably change it a few dozen times before a final decision and then have to work on the streets and sidewalks.

Green with envy over your collection of city buildings, you've put a lot of effort into collecting and building those! Very impressive! Look forward to seeing this develop.

Actually, no, I am in northwest Arkansas.  I drive up to KC every couple of months.  I do pottery and they have a great clay supply place, a great nursery in Overland Park, and lots of great places to eat including Da'Bronx for New York pizza!!  I love taking the trolley to the Farmers Market and then back to Union Station.

Still working on the streets and sidewalks but slowly getting there on my light rail layout. Added a Japanese Garden, art museum where people are lining up for hot dogs, and a wedding at the local church.

I've also thought of using the Walther's station as a museum building - perhaps with removable roof.  Although - I tend to think of art museum-goers wanting something other than hot dogs ;-)

 

Long ago I considered a sculpture train of flatcars carrying large sculptures to a private siding at an extensive sculpture park.

Well, I could say the one's waiting for hot dogs are also waiting for the tram just behind the hot dog stand.

 

Since the art museum's roof is mostly glass, I placed art and people inside that can be seen from above.

 

I took a video on my phone of the tram running but it would not load here.  Loaded on Facebook fine but not here.
