The track plan database on this website has four track plans that can be readily found just by searching for "tehachapi."  The magazine index on this website comes up with even more. 

 Jim Kelly's N scale version(s) has/have been featured often but it may be difficult to carry over what he has done to HO.

I have a couple of Tehachapi-inspired layout designs on my website. But they were designed for a huge space, so there may not be a lot there that is practical for more typical rooms..

There was an article in MR within the past few years that was PURELY a loop.  Like all the guy wanted / had space for was the loop, maybe with an outside loop to "feed" it.  It was pretty cool and direct to the point.
