First layout with RMP

Post by fpm_michael » Mon 16. Feb 2015, 20:44

So I wanted to share. This is my first layout attempt with Rail Modeler Pro. It is a perfect layout size for a 10x10 bedroom. The table is on wheels so all areas can be reached to build on.

I would love to hear everyone's opinion and thoughts on what I came up with.

I like what I see and you have some good runs. Any reason for the big open area; or is that going to develop into something?

Sorry for the long delay. I have not been able to get into this forum for some time and just now checked and it is working again.
The open area is for control and access to the layout for building. It is a very small room so I did not want to limit myself from being able to get in for track maint and building. Some shots of the layout in production. You will see some changes from the plan to the layout.

More... Also see the final layout with RMP. I made some changes that were needed after I started working. It is a very cool layout and runs even big consist very well.

Hello Michael: I just started designing a layout with v.5 of RMPro. I realize it is 2+ years since you posted your original first design, and I was very interested to see your work-in-progress. Thanks for sharing and congratulations on what you've done so far. I think it's time for an update ;) . Cheers, Henry
