Layout photos can be a great resource when you are trying to make your Model Railroad as realistic as possible, or just give you some ideas and inspiration for your own layout.
If you are interested in submitting photos of your own Model Railroad to showcase here, visit our Contribute Content page for details. We’d love to see your pictures.
Below you will find a collection of photos from both my past and present N Scale Model Railroad layouts. Many of the shots show a work in progress, mockups can be seen throughout, and there are various stages of completion. These methods allow a Model Railroader to assess a scene. Often times new ideas or placement come to light.
Composition and perspective are also an important part of the planning process, as well as the use of leading lines, either straight or curved, to guide your eyes through a scene. Background elements are purposely sized smaller to reinforce depth of field. These and many other techniques we will be sharing in detail with you as we continue the build-out process of our page.
