San Jose Shelf Switcher

N Scale
Owner: Byron Henderson
Layout Location: San Jose.CA
This compact (18" X 72") Layout is based on Western Pacific and Southern Pacific trackage around 5th St. and 7th St. in San Jose, CA.
I'm now working on a terminal-themed N scale layout to share my garage with a family car, but before I started I thought it would be a good idea to build some sort of a trial layout.
The layout is inspired by real industries and street running around 5th street and 7th street in San Jose, CA, but does not exactly match the real railroad configurations.
There is more on this layout and the real-life elements that inspired it in an article in the Layout Design Journal published by the Layout Design SIG. This was LDJ #29 published in January, 2004.
