Track Plan

Track Plan

Concept

I had a number of design concepts in my mind given the space available was 27’ x 21’6” (8.23m x 6.55m) in the double garage

 

I wanted to achieve the following:

  • Oil refinery.
  • Iron ore mine.
  • Hidden staging.
  • A couple of regional towns.
  • The ability to turn a complete train.
  • A area with a valley & ridges.
  • Access to a helix to get to the lower level.
  • Visitors to be able to watch two trains circulating on the upper level.

I wanted to avoid:

  • Small and medium radius turnouts on the mainline.
  • Narrow isles.
  • Electrical DCC bus runs of greater than nine metres.
