Reply to "What Is The Most Common Height For The Track Surface On Permanent Layouts."

As others have likely noted, 42" is the most common height for layouts in nearly all scales. That being said, I feel, as many others do, that you should build it to a height you are most comfortable with. Personally, I like layouts that are pretty darn high up so I can envision myself as a trackside spectator viewing or photographing the trains. That's not always possible or practical, of course, but it is something of a goal. My current under-construction layout is about 46" off the floor, but a good part of it will be at a higher elevation, including a point-to-point On30 line that will run the 25' length of the long wall. That line will run atop a series of cliffs, etc., and should help to make the layout look a lot deeper than it actually is.
