Model Railroad Design Service
Capture Your Vision
I start with interviews to help me fully understand what your vision for the layout is.
I take a collaborative approach to the design process, getting your feedback every step of the way.
A Detailed Finished Package
In addition to a detailed track plan, a design package also includes, detailed construction notes, tips, dimensional specs., and a track material list.
A successful model railroad design isn’t about lines on paper, curve radius, grades, or the number of tracks in a staging yard. It’s one that results in a layout that actually gets built and provides the degree of satisfaction you had hoped for.

As your model railroad designer, I’ll work with you to come up with a plan that is not only inspiring but also straightforward to build.

The cost of preparing a design is driven by how long I expect it will take me to complete. This isn’t always directly related to layout size. Costs typically fall in the $1,600 ballpark. The minimum fee is $1,000. N scale, multi-deck, and sectional track projects (Kato, Marklin, etc.) cost more. The design fee must be pre-paid before work starts.
