The "Layouts" navigation button of this web site lists all the known S layouts. The purpose of this section is to show what kind of modeling is being done in our
favorite scale, to offer ideas, to inspire other modelers, and to show that there are indeed many people who model in S-scale.
If you have a layout that includes S-scale modeling (basement "empire", convention model railroad, table-top, modular, sectional, diorama, etc.), feel free to provide
this web site's webmaster with data and/or photos, and we will be happy to post them in that section of the web site.
For about the first month of this page, we had a form that would allow submission of photo files. However, we had problems with the server correctly handling them, and
preventing information from being communicated to the webmaster. It worked for some, but not for others. So, we now offer two methods (listed below) for how you can
get your layout's data and/or photos to the NASG webmaster. Pick whichever method is easiest for you. And, thank you for considering doing this. Every little bit helps
to grow the S-scale market over time. Here are a couple of notes:
- no address or geographical location information of where the layout or the owner is/was located will be provided by this web site (for privacy
purposes); please note that if a link is provided to an external web site, that web site may give away where the layout is located, but we don't control
that (all external links are links to sites that anyone can get to).
- you do not need to be an NASG member to contribute your information.
- all data is optional; if you don't know or don't want to provide some bit of data, that's perfectly fine.
- photos provided are presumed to be copyrighted by you, unless you communicate to the webmaster who took the photo; proper credit will be extended.
- by submitting a photo, you give the NASG webmaster permission to post that photo on this web site, unless you explicitly state not to do so (e.g. when
clarifying some aspect of the layout to the webmaster).
- data and/or photos can be updated at any time, so that you can show progress on your layout.
- up to ten photos per layout are currently supported, but feel free to send however many that you want; if the demand is there, the limit of ten
can be extended.
- Brooks Stover has offered to help anyone with their photo submissions, such as applying
some light Photoshop editing, if so desired.
- layouts/dioramas do not have to have any completed state; this is not like some magazines; sometimes showing the under-construction photos can be very helpful
- Any layout style, prototype/freelance, and era is fair game, so long as it contains S-scale/1:64 modeling, so American Flyer layouts, "scale", "hi-rail", and
narrow-gauge are all acceptable, as are farming- or vehicle-modeling scenes or dioramas.
- we are set up to show more than one layout per person, so feel free to share photos and data of previous layouts (please indicate that this is an old layout).
- you can submit photos and information about other people's layouts, so long as you have permission from the layout owner to do so (if the person is still
alive, that is)
- club layouts info and photos can be submitted (please indicate so in the Notes), but those are shown in the dedicated "S Clubs" section of this web site.
Feel free to send an e-mail message at any time. If you want to send one or more photos, feel free to attach them to one or more e-mail messages.

As mentioned above, we used to support uploading photo files, but that didn't always work. However, submitting the form below, which only contains text, does work. So,
if you prefer to fill out the form, feel free to do so. If you wish to provide information about your current layout and any previous layout(s), you will need
to fill out the form once for each layout. To provide photos, please attach one or more photos to one or more e-mail messages to the webmaster:
