Quite a few people spend time looking for a ready made track plan that will fit their space right "out of the box" - they are looking for a ready made track plan that is exactly the size they want their track plan, instead of designing their own track plan based on their own wants and needs.
Personally, I feel this is a suboptimal solution - track plans should be tailor made to fit the goals of the builder/owner/operator (which often is the same person).
But I acknowledge that sometimes it may be useful to look at what other people have done to see if it might spark ideas of our own in all of use - whether they be things we want to try or things we want to stay away from :-)
So here follows a more or less random collection of various track plans I have posted in various track planning discussions on the net since 2005 or so.
