23351Re: [z_scale] Which of these two is better ??
- Jun 1, 2004I believe the continuous single curve would allow the train sets to pull loads easier.
The curves and straight might have more visual appeal however.
? is ,,do you want to pull real long trains or just just have fun?
A straight track section makes it easier to add trackside structure also.

I'm seriously setting out and glueing down my layout. On a 2%
curving grade, which of these would be better or does it make any
difference - from an operation standpoint or any other item I should
consider. Looks as if I will be using MT flex-track.
a] a single curve of about 180 degrees; all on a 2% grade; and a
single 19 inch radius.
b] two 15 inch curves on the same 2% grade with one 15 inch leading
in and one 15 inch curve leading out plus about an 8 inch straight
between the two curves.
All has to fit on a 4 foot wide base [overall 4 feet x 8 feet] and
plenty of space between the track and edges of 4x8 foam base.
Thanks for your advice.
