Hi People,

I was looking over the net today for packs of track for my DCC layout which I am building in my loft (00Scale).

Well I came accross packs of Peco tracks, but one says Code 100 and the other says Code 75 (Fine Scale). At present, I only have Hornby's track which came with the Pendolino sets plus track pack B I think, Please can somebody advise me on what track would be compatable by Peco for use with the Hornby Stuff.
Would I be allowed to post links to a website where I would buy it from or would it be classed as advertising? If not I would appreciate it if somebody could drop me an email.

Please note, I am new to all this stuff and my first project is going to (hopfully) be a big one.

Many Thanks

Regards

QUOTE (ebaykal @ 21 Oct 2007, 17:10) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Hi Breaston and welcome to the forum,

Peco Settrack along with their streamline code 100 series is compatible with Hornby rails.
Code 75, as you say is for fine scale and is not compatible with Hornby.

Enjoy the forum.

Cheers

Hello Baykal,

Many thanks for your speedy reply. Is the "Streemline code 100" flexible, or would I need Peco code SL100GS/B which is flexlible according to a description I have read on a shop website?

I am hoping to change my "Breaston" name as thats where I live, as I will be trying to recreate my local station which has since closed many decades ago.

Many thanks.
Kyle

Oh I am confused now (doesn't take much to confuse me).

Perhaps this info might be able to help you more:
  • DCC all over layout using mixture of Hornby and ? Peco Track
  • Only modern made new released items will be running, manufacturers Hornby and Bachmann only
  • Controls via Hornby Select.
I will have another read of your coments again, many thanks for those who have repied above, I'm sure it will help me in one way...

Space isn't a problem, as it will be in the loft and there is ample room in there.

So I understand, Code 100 is the same as Hornby Set Track, and the Code 100 Flexi Track is the same, again, as Hornby Set track?

I will be using Hornby Points as I have got plenty of those.

Once this has been confirmed I have a second query to ask regarding Track, which I am hoping won't take a long time to sort out.

Many thanks

Kyle

Hi, my other question is:

I have 2 Hornby Select control units to use on 2 different circuits.

Can the 2 circuits cross over each others lines, using cross overs, even though the circuits are not connected to each other? Not sure about doing this anyway but thought I might as well ask...

Thanks again for the comments on track,,,,,,,,,

basically my "rough sketch" isn't how it will be at all. the cross over is just so I can send locos from one side (circuit) to the other where sidings will be, but this should show what i mean, and I do want to use 2 select controlers using 2 power supplies so I can run more having, in theory, 2 layouts in one.
