Hello all :)

 

There is a new website for collect together model train track plans and layouts in all scales and sizes, build with SCARM modelling software:

 

SCARM – Model Train Layouts & Track Plans

 

Most of the content in the site is created by SCARM users and sent by e-mail. Some of the layouts are already presented in SCARM blog, but there are new projects and more will come soon. At the moment, I am editing and uploading all stuff, but in the near future I plan to add support for user registrations, so everybody to be able to create an account and to upload projects in the site.

 

Everybody can browse the projects in the site or to search and filter the track plans by several criteria, such as “scale”, “size”, “trackage” and so on. In example, the following link will show all railway layouts and plans in HO scale, listed for now in the site. Every project has its own page, where it is presented with more pictures, described with many parameters (such as minimum radius, maximum grade, suitable traffic, etc.) and sometimes explained by me or by its author. All (or almost all) published layouts will have corresponding SCARM files ready to be downloaded from the links at bottom in the layout’s page. There is also an option for each project to be rated with rating stars from 1 to 5 – this is located below the description. Voting system works without registration, but is limited by only one vote per project from a visitor in order to make ratings relevant and correct.

 

The site is also optimized for smartphones and tables, so you can browse it almost any­where and anytime. However, some pictures may not look very detailed on small phone screens, but in overall you can get a good impression even from 320×480 sized cell phones.

 

At the moment, there is no option for commenting below the layouts, but such feature may appear in the future. The site is now in beta state and needs to be used for some period in real environ­ment to see how it performs, is it easy and useful, etc. So please, try it and comment here what do you think about it.

 

And if you have some cool SCARM layout or track plan that you want to share with others, just send your .scarm project file to me at mail.gif.

 

Hope you will like the site and will get many ideas from it even if you don’t use SCARM :)

The track plans and layouts in the database are growing - now there are more than 40 projects of all scales and sizes. Here are the most searched categories so far:

HO scale track plans (all sizes)
N gauge track plans (all sizes)
Micro sized layouts & track plans (all gauges)
Small sized layouts & track plans (all gauges)

See here one interesting plan in HO: Compact Railroad Layout in HO scale

Another cool layout, but in N: Ikea IVAR Shelftop Railway Layout in N Scale

I hope that everybody will find something interesting and inspiring there :)
