Hello everyone! It has been a while since I have posted anything on my layout, but I thought I share its current progress. The layout is 6 by 10 using Atlas Track, an includes one passing siding, two return loops, an industrial yard, and can run two trains (sharing the track of course), along with a third engine switching in the yard. The ballast is non-clumping/non-scented cat litter, along with many of the buildings being from Menards, as well as some classic Lionel accessories. Fall/Halloween is one of my favourite times of year, hence the fall colours as well as the haunted house. As far as I know, there is no other layout quite like this, and was made/designed using the free Scarm technology. I can't thank my friends enough for all their help in making my 1st layout possible!I hope you all enjoy and keep on railroading!

Very nicely done. I'm working on a 5 x 11 layout and it is always nice to see what can be done in smaller spaces.
Any chance you could post video of the layout running? Also, love the blue comet!!

Looks great. Lot's of action in a moderate sized space.
That's a great layout!!! I love how much running ability you fit in the space!
Thank you so much sir😁! Ikr?! It took a lot of finagaling, but it was well wroth it! It even has 045/054 curves on the main line and only 036 in the yard and spurs.

That Blue Comet is gorgeous.
Awesome layout in a tight space.
I will have about 6 1/2 ft x 14 ft to work with. This is inspiration to keep working at it.
Yes she is! She's one of my favourites and reminds me of home, as I hail originally from New Jersey. You are very kind! Hope to see pictures of yours too!
Both are great. Nice use of the music to break things up too.
One criticism tho - please shoot horizontal videos. Vertical format doesn't do trains justice.
I really liked the Blue Comet video especially.
Interesting how modern video will pick up certain types of lights as if they were a strobe light when they do not appear so in real life. Your depot platform light was strobing, as does my Bachmann 'trench' engine's headlights when I shoot video of it for some reason...
