Which RRinaBox layout system is right for you?
If you already own trains, the answer is easy:

If you have O or S scale or On30 trains we steer you directly to the MTH 500 Series, L-600 Series or try our new 200 Series (see details below).

If you fancy HO, N, or Z scale, then your choice will be the 300 Series.

Other considerations as to which layout system is right for you are:  the size of your layout space, the size of your budget, and whether you want a seasonal or permanent layout.  Track plans are plentiful in all series so you can choose an exciting layout within your budget.  RRinaBox is the easiest most economical way to build a layout so more of your money can be spent on track, trains, buildings and other accessories.

The unique and remarkable feature of the RRinaBox layout systems is that the most difficult aspects of building a layout have been pre-determined for you specifically the daunting prospect of having a train change levels has been eliminated by pre-engineered grades.  Likewise, we take the intimidation of wood benchwork and replace it with easy to assemble foam engineered ribs.

Regardless of your skill level, RRinaBox is easy to build and uses household tools for construction—NO POWER TOOLS NEEDED.  Of course, all series contain enjoyment, family bonding, excitement and “pride in a job well done”.

300 Series

RRinaBox Kato 200 Series                                     
These track plans were developed with Kato USA, using their Unitrack system.  Other track brands can be used --talk to a RRinaBox consultant for the necessary modifications.  The 200 Series can be used for N & Z scale.  As it is our smallest layout design and it is ideal for someone who is “space challenged”-- perfect for an apartment or resting on a coffee table. The 200 Kato Series best exemplifies the meaning of RRinaBox–very portable and easily taken down and stored in a closet.  Its dimensions and lightweight even meet Amtrak’s carry-on requirements, so this layout really moves!

The 200 Series makes layouts that are 2'0" x 3'4" (A & B modules) and 2'0" x 5'0" (A, B & C modules).  They can be used with HO narrow gauge.

Instructional DVD and handbook are included.

This is our smallest layout yet it provides much excitement as it has two mountains and tunnels, three bridges and runs two trains, one crossing over the other.

The 200 Series is
$159.95 ( A & B modules)
$199.95 (A, B & C modules)

The 200 Series is also available assembled (basic structure).  Call for prices and details.

300 Series The 300 Series was designed to encourage the beginning model builder to embark on a first layout; however,  over the years we have found that experienced model builders have enjoyed the ease and fun of RRinaBox 300 Series.   Track plans are designed for HO, N & Z Scales with designations on the patterns to show where specific track is to be placed.  Most track brands can be used --talk to a RRinaBox personal layout consultant (e-mail & phone # listed below) if you have questions about a particular track or want to come up with your own track plan.  Below are products available in the 300 Series:
I

300 HO, N, & Z Scale A&B.  The basic modular set of A & B makes a 4’0”x5’4” layout.  This is ideal for small apartments and seasonal/holiday use.  For easy storage, the modules nest to create a RRinaBox that is 32”x40”x24”.   Drawings include two tunnel portals, two girder bridges, a truss bridge, retaining walls, viaduct, and city/townscape area with streets, curbs and sidewalks.  Water areas with waterfall and river bed are included.

Includes: 
(1)  12 drawings, each 36”x42”.

(2)  1 hour instructional DVD—“How to Build a Realistic O Scale Layout”

(3)  72 page illustrated handbook, that includes material lists, tools and assembly instructions.

(4)  8 pages of track plans for all tastes and budgets (in handbook).

(5)  3” tube for lamination.

 

II

302 HO, N & Z Scale Expansion C.  This C module is an ingenious method for expanding your layout on its way to becoming an empire.  By using multiple C modules you can make your layout as long as you like.  One C module inserted between the A&B modules make a layout 4’0”x8’0”.  Foamcore construction makes bolting easy, and can the modules can be disassembled for easy storage/transport. The addition of one C module adds 2 bridges, longer trains, additional town and scenery space (a RR yard enhances any layout), and a dock to your layout.

Includes:
5 drawings, each 36”x42”.

 

III

305 HO, N, Z Scale A+C+B.  These drawings combine the two previous products.  This builds a layout 4’0”x8’0”.  This is the most popular size for a layout; therefore, this set of drawings is our best seller.  Even this layout can be expanded with additional C modules to make it longer.  In the future, RRinaBox will have patterns to build modules which will expand the width.  Read descriptions above for complete contents.

Includes:
(1)  17 drawings, each 32”x42”.

(2)  1 hour instructional DVD—“How to Build a Realistic HO Scale Layout”.

(3)  72 page illustrated handbook, that includes material lists, tools and assembly instructions.

(4)  8 pages of track plans for all tastes and budgets (in handbook).

(5)  3” tube for lamination.

 

IV
306  HO, N, Z scale Expansion D, E & F.  These expansion modules allow you to grow your layout’s width (10” per module) by adding to the “front” of your layout--it grows to 4’10” x 8’.  The D, E & F modules provide unlimited possibilities for your layout configuration & visual excitement as you can add more sidings, trains yards or other scenes.  In addition, the D, E & F modules can form a shelf layout connected to the main layout.  This is easily accomplished because the geometry of the D & F profiles mate perfectly with the existing profiles in two directions.  Track extends from the main layout to the self layout.
V
307 HO, N, Z Scale Expansion G, H & I.  These expansion modules are the same size as the D, E & F modules and are added to the “back” of the layout.  The siding to the mountain with the mine can be extended as well as the cove (waterfalls).  These expansion modules can also form a shelf layout connected to the main layout because the G & I profiles mate perfectly with existing profiles in two directions.  Track easily extends from the main layout to the shelf layout.

L-600 Series

RRinaBOX Introduces the L-600 Series
By popular demand, Alley Friends Architects of Philadelphia, have expanded their RRinaBOX layout design system and are introducing a brand new set of drawings that utilize Lionel O-31 FasTrack.  The RRinaBOX L-600 Series, now joins the RRinaBOX MTH 500 Series in O gauge full-size patterns to be mounted on foamcore, cut out, and assembled to create modules for constructing an O gauge train layout.   RRinaBOX offers the only layout building system in O gauge.

Al Johnson of RRinaBOX was thrilled when Lionel, last year, put O-31 FasTrack on the market.  However, to his dismay, Lionel’s O-31 FasTrack did not fit on the existing RRinaBOX O gauge drawings.  Al and his team realized that the O-31 diameter for MTH track (and traditional Lionel tubular track which works on the MTH 500 Series) measures to the outside of the ties and the O-31 FasTrack measures to the center rail – an actual difference of 3” in a circle!  So it was back to the drawing board for RRinaBOX to come up with a new set of drawings to accommodate Lionel’s geometry.

The “L” in L-600 Series indicates that it utilizes the Lionel geometry and many customers will be happy to know they can also use track from Ross Custom Switch.  Beginners can use all the track included in a Lionel train set. The L-600 Series retains all the qualities that make RRinaBOX the easiest, fastest and most economical way to build a layout.  Its foamcore construction needs no power tools or a wood shop to build.  The lightweight and modular design make the layout easily transportable and like all RRinaBOXes, the modules fold and nest for storage.

Along with its RRinaBOX predecessors in HO, N & Z scales, the L-600 Series comes with 8 exciting track plans, many running multiple trains going over top of each other, tunnels, mountains, bridges, sidings and  more features that are included in the full-size patterns – all the qualities which make a layout exciting. The L-600 Series is also expandable in both length and width.  Using the RRinaBOX expansion modules a beautiful and exciting  4’x 8’layout can be built.  So, it is no longer necessary to buy a sheet of plywood and paint it green -- the RRinaBOX L-600 Series quickly and easily gets you off the ground, through the mountains and over the bridges.
