I have just finished what will be a new American N Scale layout over the top of my existing British N Gauge layout, the era will be late 1960s early 1970s, it will be a freelance type layout loosely located in Western Kansas, I chose Kansas because its as flat as a pancake and I didn't want to get to involved with scenery because of the possibility of making a mess of the layout below.

It will have two towns one larger than the other, lots of Corn, Wheat and Sunflower fields, a Grain loading Silo, Passenger train storage yards and general Industry Sidings including Oil, the only raised scenery will be something that resembles the Monument Rocks area, wouldn't have a clue how close the nearest railroad is to these rocks but in my world SantaFe and UP locos would look pretty OK passing by, here are a couple of pictures of where I am at the moment.

Putting those boards over the top makes the British layout look dull and grey, just like their weather...!
