|Two houses. Built on a footprint I got from Steve Barile who I believe got it from somebody else. The GPLR
challenged ourselves to build a residential neighborhood consisting off
houses built on the same footprint, but detailed entirely different.
This section is built to be entirely modular, use a minimum of bricks
but still get a nice textured look and be easily transported.
I think the tree design is especially noteworthy.
Ciick here to view the GPLR album of a train show where we used a standard similar to this for a 20 foot section of the layout.
|Here is an exploded view of all the components parts. Each of the house is built on a 16x32 baseplate, which fits on top of a 32x32 baseplate with risers underneath to set the height.|
|Here is a detail of how the sidwalks, curb and street all go together. The sidewalks are specifically designed to use a minimum number of gray tiles which seem to be hard to come by in quantity.|
|an overall cross section of a relatively narrow street.|
|And a wider street.|
|And if you want to include trolley tracks inside the street, you might try something like this.|
