Re: re a4 box layout help
- given these dimensions, you are very limited.
the smallest "set" track by marklin is an oval 14" x 12".thats using
a marklin power feed track as well.
the only other alternative is to sue flex track, and have very tight
curves, but you will find the point of limitation very quickly
depending on which loco you intend to use.
as a suggestion, why not go for a briefcase size layout ?. this will
certainly allow you more choice of track plans then.
the Noch Briefcase layout measures some 18" x 14" and has a loop
within a loop, with an internal siding as well.again, this utilises
Marklins "Set" track pieces , or again, try flexi in tis dimension
with a small 0-6-0 engine and you will have quite a wide choice of
if you want the briefcase layout trackplan let me know, and i wil
mail it to you td25scorpio@ ntlworld.com (close the gap after
the "@" symbol)
