This is the old Pacific Coast Air Line Railway. It was a beginner's level 4x8 On30 layout. The website presents construction articles about layout construction. Hopefully it will inspire others to jump in and build a layout. It was my first On30 layout and my first attempt at scenery.

The New On30 Layout
We have resurrected the old On30 layout. It has been expanded to 5x8. Am impressed by how much six inches improves the space. We are going to use Peco track. The benchwork is one piece this time, no sagging. Just added five foot cross members to the old side pieces. Using foam to create the creek below level. (Click image to enlarge)
