Re: new layout opinion time for switching
- Hello again, thanks for the input so far.
I agree that there are a great number of variations on the continuous
run layout theme, and the feedback with layout design suggestions has
been great too!
Thanks for the feedback on rail size. I don't mind thinking of
something closer to scale for a later project, but now I just want to
get building, and my research tells me that the pile of
MicroEngineering code 55 rail I already have will more than suffice to
produce trackwork that should be directly interchangeable with
Marklin, MT, and so on. What are the wheel flanges like on Marklin,
can they handle the smaller rails (I only have MT trucks and wheelsets
With regard to operation, what I am curious to, and perhaps the
allusion will have to suffice, but (given optimal conditions), is
switching cars a possibility? What is the slow speed running like? I
have been able to look through many of the videos online featuring Z
layouts, and I am really impressed with the smooth operation over the
main that is acheiveable. Perhaps I need to re-think, and consider a
continuous run myself with options to set out cars?
Happy new year all, thanks for taking the time to contribute to this
list and make it (and the scale too!) so interesting.
