I am in the planning stages of setting up a railroad in my garage and am looking for input as to the hoary question of Radius to return at each end of the layout. I can afford about 5.5 metres of wall space and I am doing a single track "oval" with a minimum of points in HO.Peco settrack code 100. It will be as early british as I can "produce". some rolling green countyside, meandering track, picturesque bridge, some bucolic cows, a rural station (Tunbridge Wells has piqued my imagination!).
But before I can begin there's a bit to get ordered first. For my ends would I be skimping too much to go for a radius 3 (45degrees), R2, R2, R3? , I am also musing whether to go R4 (22.5degrees) R3, R2, R3, R4.
Experience will tell me if I got it wrong (Which is why I am not considering R1, been there done that) Your advice will probably save me an annoying layout. I am just trying to be miserly with my layout width!!!!
All comments welcome
Cheers from Mr Newbie, Bluey.
