N Gauge Train Model Railroad

N Gauge Model Railroad

N gauge railroading is increasing in popularity each year. An n scale model railroad looks pretty cool when it is running, the diminutive size of the trains and accessories sure to catch a lot of inquisitive looks.

At 1:44 scale, an n scale model railroad doesn’t need to take up a lot of space. A small layout can be built in a twenty four diameter circle. Human figures are about ½ inch in N gauge.

Two layout ideas for N scale would be a glass topped bar or coffee table. The table or bar needs to be designed so the inside measurement is about twenty five inches, and the glass top should be easily lifted for track maintenance and to be able to get to the trains in case of derailment.

N Scale railroading became easier with the advent of pre-mounted track. Bachman and Lifelike both make their own versions of this track and it has revolutionized n scale model railroading. The track is mounted directly to the road bed pieces which are coupled together. An n gauge train can be up and running in a very short time with this track. It can be assembled on carpet, a table, or just about any flat surface.

An n scale model railroad can be exciting and can be set up just about any where. Set one up in the family room, living room, or near your entertainment area. N scale railroading is flexible and fun.
