A little progress (but not very much).

It's really just a double track circle with a terminus in the middle and a reversing loop option. I hope aligned the rails around the junction properly.

Please do not send requests for help direct to me via email or PM.

Post your questions on the forum where everyone can see them and add helpful replies.
Thanks for posting that Andy. Any updates?

Is that the only H00-DN layout in captivity? :)

At 32ft x 6ft you have plenty of length, but very tight on width for the end curves. Where will the operating space be for the terminus? Inside the loops or outside with the main lines between the controls and the station?

I notice you have a fixed diamond at 1:9.5 which could cause some mis-tracking. At that angle most folks would go for a switch diamond.

Are you planning to have the junction pointwork 3-D printed?

cheers,

Martin.

Hi Martin,

Sorry for my slow reply. I've been chasing trains.

Visited our daughter in California then the Durango & Silverton in Colorado. I have pics, including some details of a turnout. Where might there be a good place to park them?

After that I intercepted UP's restored Big Boy as it returned to Cheyenne.

I've made a few changes and will post an update in a bit. As I already have a lot of SMP track the turnouts will be printed to 00-SF. Originally I was going to make the layout multi-level but decided against it. In the best Hornby-Dublo tradition it will basically a double track circuit with reversing loop capability. The double-junction feeds to terminus on the inside of the double track circuit.

The tight radii bits at the ends will be "off-stage". I might add some storage loops there too.

Yes, I think that diamond (and some others) will have to be switched.

Cheers!
