If you have ideas for a specific project or would like to know more about my services and fees, let's start a conversation. Please let me know what type of help you require, your model railroad interests, space, and so on.
I’ve been published in dozens of articles in the commercial and SIG press on the topics of layout design and operations. See some of my published plans in the Layout Design Gallery or you can check out some of my recent articles in this bibliography.
I have created a couple hundred custom model railroad track plans for clients since beginning formal layout design consulting in 2004, as well as helping to develop operating plans for layouts large and small.
Many of my custom track plans have been published in the model railroad press and some example designs are also found in my Layout Design Gallery. Client comments can be seen on the Results page of this site. I'm also available for editing and authoring for publishers, SIGs, Historical Societies, etc. I currently edit the Layout Design SIG’s Layout Design Journal magazine.
My own modeling interests are focused on the Bay Area railroads, including the Southern Pacific, Western Pacific, and Santa Fe. I'm building a proto-freelanced N scale layout featuring rail-marine freight terminal operations in the 1950s. I am a member of the NMRA, Layout Design SIG, Operations SIG, and the SP and ATSF historical societies.
