I am new to the hobby and I am looking for sites that list EZ-Track layouts.
I have found the following:

http://www.thortrains.net/marx/funlayez1.html


What other sites are out there? Does Bachmann have a book with layouts?

Thanks for the help  Grin

I think Bachmann had a book about E-Z track layouts, but, If I can remember correctly, it's out of print. Sad

           "Bachmann's EZ track system" book was copyright 1995 has over 20
layouts. The "Book II" has another 6-8 layouts was copyright 1998.
           For web sights, I just recently came across "caboose hobbies"
top bar way on the right try "track layouts". I think I counted 16 EZ track
layouts some have needed dimension ( space needed ) some did not have
that. I also noticed at least a couple are for N Scale EZ track.

           Good-luck

Congrats Bach-man, you're really on a roll with all the announcements, new website, WGH layouts - WOW!

You'll knock our sox off if you arrange to 'FREE the 2" straights' (in conjunction with releasing the book; that'll make the EZ track book a real winner - or why not bundle the book with 2" straights - lol).

By the way, who is authoring the book this time?? Also, do you have an email address so I can send a note to your previous author Robert Schleicher?

Thanks Bach-man

I decided one night to create a layout, using EZ track, in the spare room. I ended up with a huge 8x10 layout, with a 60 degree crossover, two 90 degree crossovers, a pier set, a considerably long main, and lots of sidings and spurs. I have six DCC locos assigned to four addresses, one of which is my NHL train which I recently converted over to DCC. Wow! (I have to take some pics to post). I couldn't believe the layout ended up working out really well... and it's a good thing the 90 degree crossovers come with those 2" straights because I used all eight of them in various "odd" locations throughout the layout. I set it up on the hardwood floor, and used the lines in the floor to determine wether or not tracks were perpendicular! I still have the same configuration and like it a lot... how much space do you have to work with?

         I wish I took some pictures and jotted down some track measurements for layouts I did on the basement floor, before I got to work on my bench work for Big Bear RR : featuring Wondeland Express - Passenger Service & Great Northern - Freight Service, in On30.

tigerthelion - I have built a 4ft x 8ft table with a foam top to work with, but I it would be good to link to as many sites that people know about for ez-track layouts. That way if others reference the site there will be a nice thread of links for them to check out.

A good book is "101 Track Plans for Model Railroaders" by Linn Westcott and published by Kalmbach.
Here is a website with some layouts -
