Welcome to Circus City Decals Custom Waterslide Decals Design & Printing

Welcome to the Circus City Decals modular layout!

I set out to design a layout which could be used for model photography of decal sets produced by Circus City Decals along with testing of equipment and enjoyment of running trains.  Below are some work in progress photos and videos of the layout. Enjoy!

The Modules - 3 sections 15" Deep x 8' long

The River Bridge

Wisconsin & Southern Yard Office

United Coop Grain Elevator

Although not prototypical I've included a Micro Engineering single track bridge which uses their 50' kits. I wanted to have this scene in the modules as it will offer some great photo opportunities.

Loosely based off the prototype United Coop the modules will have a pair of large 120' diameter grain bins and a few other kits added to complete this scene.

The staging yard is 24' long x 20" wide and contains 8 tracks. Track is Atlas code 100 with Peco switches. Above the yard are 2 storage shelf units which are 8' long x 24" tall and have 6 shelves each.
