Hi Cap'n Jack,

Been giving some thought to your 10 x 6'-6" Board and your specification and have come up with the attached design.

Twin track for continuous running with half of it hidden beneath a Main Line Terminus.

End-to-end running between the Main Line Terminus and a Branch Line Terminus.

Moderate amount of shunting potential.

With the tracks on 3 levels there should be plenty of scenic possibilities.

Let me know if this is the sort of thing you have in mind.

Rectangle Slope Font Parallel Circle


Cheers,

Expat.

Hi Cap'n,

My pleasure.

Re. levels, yes that's right. I haven't worked out all the gradients yet and it might be necessary to "dip" the main line a bit to give clearance under the Main Line Terminus. I nice gentle grade up to the Branch line terminus though, say 1 : 75.

I'll give it some more thought now the principle is "approved". What form of construction have you used and what is the thickness of the board top ??

Cheers,

Expat.
