Track Layout

Whilst I’ve been concentrating on rolling stock, it seems that I need to get on with the groundwork fast if I am to stay in the competition. Photos needed of the layout from each end by end of August suggests there should be something ready to photograph. I’ve been planning the trackwork in Trax2 software. (KBP Publications, available from Transportdiversions) Easy with straight track, but getting pointwork and turnouts set up on curves is not as easy. The main line has a radius of 10 metres. The crossings are 1:9 or 1:8. The only problem with Trax2 is that the files don’t export to anything but Trax files. So I printed it out, and photographed it…
