Critique my Track Plan

There is an interesting discussion going on over in the Model Railroad Hobbyist forums where I've posted a couple of track plan ideas for an expanded version of the MFR. There are a lot of really knowledgeable guys there offering some great advice and I am learning a lot. Head on over to my post to check it out and maybe jump in the conversations!


  1. Hi Matt, I come across your plan on MRH. Was a very good discussion and opened my eyes on a few things. Although i model 1920's branch line and logging i can see myself jumping into modern era in a few years. Have been enjoying the thoughts on operations from the guys working real life.

    Will be following along with your blog as you post.

  2. Awesome! Great to have you aboard!
