Bill Roberts: San Antonio & Aransas Pass Railway

My layout is a 9 by 15 oval with an area of about 90 square feet. It has 105 feet of mainline track, No. 6 switches, 44 inch radius curves and 1-1/2% grades. The layout is designed for running trains, and each siding is a staging track to hold a short train. Its inspiration is the San Antonio & Aransas Pass Railway, which started laying track in 1885. Today on the prototype only a small part of the original right-of-way remains in use by the Union Pacific. However, business is booming on the S scale version!
