Track plans and tips for creating my layouts!

Hi, I’m James. This website supports my YouTube Channel, “James’ N Scale Train Layout Project.” I’m a hobbyist N Scale train enthusiast living in San Diego, California. I recently built my first 4×8 feet train layout in my home. I documented the entire experience with video, and I’m doing the same with my second, 3×8 feet “Performance Track” layout! I’m also a amateur photographer and videographer so I have fun recording my layout and how I build it.

Check out my blog for details on my experiences in this wonderful hobby, or videos of the building process. The gallery/GIFs pages have some great shots/video of my layouts. I’m not an expert or an instructor, I’m just sharing what I’ve done to build my personal layouts. Feel free to also check out my Portfolio Website for details on other creative projects I’ve been involved in. Happy Trains to Everyone!
