John Shows How He Achieved A Bigger Industrial Footprint On His N Scale Inglenook Shunting Layout

John Reitz kindly sent in this photo of some Rail Freight industrial buildings he adapted for his N Scale Inglenook Shunting Layout. Says John, “The white buildings were printed out to make a four-sided structure to go along with the regular construction plan. I wanted to have a bigger industrial footprint. Very enjoyable building these.”

The white buildings John refers to are made from plan 546 available at https://www.modelbuildings.org/rail-yard-warehouses-pack-deal The plan comprises several buildings that can be arranged in various configurations (see video below) to suit individual layout designs. John cleverly printed out some extra texture to convert the tall white building (right of center in the photo) from a backdrop low relief structure to a four-sided model.
