Of all the different types of layouts you could be utilizing in your model railroad set, the 4x8 N scale track plans are becoming one of the favorites of families across the region. This particular track has many benefits that will allow the entire family to enjoy this unique hobby for many years to come.
The N Scale Size
The obvious reason the 4x8 N scale track plans is growing in popularity is because of the smaller size. Unlike the bigger sets that can only utilize a certain mount of space before they take over a room, the N scale is small enough that you can fit an entire city on a single piece of plywood. This smaller size allows you to add more track, more scenery, and even more trains, basically getting double the area than you would if you had chosen the largest of the scale sizes. With this smaller size you can pay extreme attention to detail in every area of the set. The buildings to the tracks are all created with extreme detail, making them look exactly like their larger scale counterparts.
Growing Your Layout
The 4x8 n scale track plans are so small that you have the ability to place that one piece of plywood in either a spare bedroom, the basement, or even in the garage area. Once you have decided on a theme, you develop the set so the trains, buildings, signage, and vehicles all match perfectly. With this smaller size set you have the ability to add a new piece of wood whenever you have outgrown the first. Now you can either expand upon the type of city you already are using or you can create an entirely new city from as far back as the original steam locomotive.
