About this video

Want to plan your model train layout on computer? Joe Fugate reviews how he designed his Siskiyou Line model railroad track plan on computer in the 90s, and how he'd approach it today using the latest software. Includes many tips for good layout design whether using a high-tech computer or good ol' paper and pencil.

One way to get more model train layout is to multideck it. But multideck design can be tricky: how much separation between decks is best? How wide should the decks be and allow seeing all the lower deck? Joe Fugate tackles the tough multideck questions, helping your multideck model railroad design be the best it can be.
