My name is Mark A. Baczkowski owner of Layout as well as the craftsman that has produced all the projects that you will see on this website. My planning, building, and assembly services have been assisting clients across the country and around the world as a result of my own personal enjoyment of the model railroad hobby.

Model railroading had always been an interest of mine while growing up but really became a serious hobby in 2004. During a visit to a local train shop, I purchased a small Bachmann HO train set and haven't stopped creating layouts and related projects for myself and clients ever since.

I'm always interested in hearing your custom model railroad project ideas and how I can best assist in making it an outstanding project. I look forward to making myself available for your modeling needs and a possible working relationship.

Thank you for visiting my website and let me know if I can be of assistance.
