Z-shorty Layout Plan

Recommended Posts


Hi All, I'm starting a small automated layout based on the Z-shorty's from Rokuhan. I'm getting into these because I want to somewhat approximate a real layout in way too small a space. 

The basic plan is to have trains run between Tokyo and another major station (Currently going to be Shin-Osaka, but I'm not sure yet), with some trains stopping at Maibara. Trains will make a couple of loops of the layout before pulling into the end station. I'm hoping that I'll have at least 4 High-speed trains moving on the layout at any 1 time, all controlled with arduino's and H-bridges (think DC control). 


Long term, I aim to have another 'slow' loop twisting around under this layout, so plenty of room has been left for that idea, but of course that means this shinkansen loop will need to be elevated. Plenty of ambitious things to work on! I'd love to know if anyone has any feedback on anything here

Welcome, and hmm, Shorties!  Looking forward to seeing how this progresses.
