Yukari model train layout


Marc over at the Shin-Yukari blog is doing some fantastic work! The level of detail is amazing. So much layout in a relatively small footprint makes super-detailing this this more possible.

As far as goals for a future layout goes, Marc's layout ticks a LOT of buttons for me. The track work is a lot of fun here.

There is so much action to be had. It's really well thought out.

The details are stunning and I love his use of lighting and electrics - another goal for my layout when I get it up and going again.

Fantastic details.

Goals. So many goals met here. If I didn't know better, I would have thought the image below to be a real photo. Really grand work!

And to see items that I own taken up to grand levels like this is really exciting for me. I have this truck depot, but the lighting and internal detail additions really take it above and beyond.

Lastly, I would really like some complex switch areas like this on my layout. It's a fun section.

All in all, seeing work like this fills me with excitement. I hope to find a space where I can get my layout going again, but really plan and plot before starting in on building. I was going to start now, but without knowing how much space I'll have it seems like it wouldn't be a good use of time. For now, I'll continue these fact finding missions and see what ideas I can farm for the future.



  1. That is a really clever way to create some layout space. Thanks for sharing this.
