  • Description

    Grand Valley includes the terrain and landscape materials necessary to build a 4' x 8' (121 cm x 243 cm) HO scale lightweight layout. Risers and Inclines/Declines create hills, mountains and low-lying areas. Foam Sheets make flat, elevated areas for towns and buildings. Plaster Cloth creates a hard terrain covering. Make and install rocks, add roads, tunnel portals and culverts. The sturdy, completed layout needs no plywood base or additional structural support. Build an easy display with Square Module Kit Stands.

    Layout shown completed with companion product, City and Industry Building Set™ (S1486).

    • Can the Layout Kits be altered to a diffrent scale?

      Yes, more experienced modelers can adapt the Layout Kits to another scale. A new track plan will need to be configured, and some items including, Portals and Culverts may not be the correct size for your scale. You may want to consider using the Mod-U-Rail System. 

    • Can I use track other than Atlas with HO Grand Valley Layout Kit?

      This is possible, but requires designing a new track plan and reconfiguring the layout of the Risers and Inclines/Declines.

      The track plan for the Grand Valley Layout Kit was designed using Atlas Code 83 Snap-Track.

    • I am building the Grand Valley and would like to run two trains on the same setup. Do you have any suggestions how that can be done?

      We do have some suggestions:

      Method #1 - Install and wire the track for "block " control. This requires a seperate power pack or transformer for each train and wiring a number of switches to determine which transformer has control of a train on a particular block of track. Block control is not expensive, nor is it difficult to install.

      Method #2 - Use a digital command control (DCC) system. DCC requires a more expensive electronics package, with corresponding decoders in your model train engines. A DCC system can be designed to control switches, lights, sounds and other operations.

      For expert, more detailed advice, you can research these topics via books, railroad magazines and Web sites. Local model railroading clubs are also a great resource.

    • How many Square Kit Stands are needed to support the Grand Valley Layout?

      Two Square Module Kit Stands are sufficient to support the Grand Valley Layout Kit.

    • Can track other than Atlas be used with your Layout Kits?

      We designed our Layout Kits to work with the Atlas Track. Atlas makes a high quality track that is easy to work with and great for beginners. We don't recommend a beginner trying to alter the kit by using another type of track. While it is possible, it will work better for someone already experienced with SubTerrain and track layouts. It requires designing a new track plan and reconfiguring the layout of the Risers and Inclines.
