The design of a dogbone RLA with linear-field multi-pass arcs was earlier developed for accelerating muons in a Neutrino Factory and a Muon Collider. It allows for efficient use of expensive RF while the multi-pass arc design based on linear combined-function magnets exhibits a number of advantages over separate-arc or pulsed-arc designs. Such an RLA may have applications going beyond muon acceleration. This paper describes a possible straightforward test of this concept by scaling a GeV scale muon design for electrons. Scaling muon momenta by the muon-to-electron mass ratio leads to a scheme, in which a 4.35 MeV/c electron beam is injected in the middle of a 2.9 MeV/pass linac with two double-pass return arcs and is accelerated to 17.4 MeV/c in 4.5 passes. All spatial dimensions including the orbit distortion are scaled by a factor of 7.5, which arises from scaling the 200 MHz muon RF to a readily available 1.5 GHz. The footprint of a complete RLA fits in a 25x7 m area. The scheme utilizes only fixed field magnets for both injection and extraction. The hardware requirements are not very demanding making it straightforward to implement the scaled design using available equipment.
