Layout Design
Description:

Jeff took an O-scale layout built by Frank Smith of New Jersey in the 1930s, updated the design, and scaled it to fit a 15' by 33' S-scale layout. It is an around-the-walls design intended for a basement. It looks like a point-to-point design, but a single hidden track connects the two ends to allow for continuous running.
