It would be best to roughly make a sketch drawn on paper of the layout you want to build. You will certainly need a board of 6'x4' fixed to a frame 2"x1" timber.
Is your layout to be a permanent structure i.e. in the loft area or spare room?
Once you have a plan of a layout, as an example, two ovals and three sidings, you will then be able to work out the number of straights, curves and points needed.
I would certainly advise you not to buy second hand track and points, however the price seems a bargain. Both Hornby and Peco publish a booklet, giving suggested plans to fit a given board area, and also in the booklet a detailed list of all track pieces and their reference numbers i.e. R--- or ST---.
