An advantage of N scale

With our recent slow down on actually building the Keeney Creek shifter, I have been looking at some N scale modules to see what others have been doing. I thought I would share a recent find and point out the advantages, at least one that I see, in modeling N scale.

Lee Weldon posted an interesting three module plan based on the Western Maryland’s passenger station in Cumberland, MD. The design process that struck me the most was the use of an aerial photograph of downtown Cumberland. Mr Weldon drew the outlines of his three modules on to the photograph. What an interesting design process. His three modules make an excellent corner for a larger model railroad. The modules also make an excellent layout with staging on either side for the person who has a minimal space.

Mr Weldon’s small corner scene is an excellent example of one of the advantages of N scale. It allows one to take a scene and put it into a small space with minimal compression. If you are a modeller with limited space consider using N scale as your modeling medium.
