Looks interesting!  :hmmm:

Any further details - sizing, placing? Did wonder if some tracks are too close to the edge? (there's a song in that!)

Cheers  :beers:

What's the board size? Those rails look incredibly close to the edge!

Not sure I understand, Simon. In the first post you state 6ft x 3½ft = 72" x 42"
Then you say the board is 66" x 30" but the layout you show as being 76" x 32"
 ???

Hi

The angle of the point looks far too tight I would expect it to be more like the two that make up the crossover.

What planning software are you using?

Cheers

Paul

I don't think much British stuff will go round a 6" radius :no: :worried:

I agree, looking at pictures it does look like the 6” turnout. I also agree that outside of trams I wouldn’t use that.

The pic is a bit pixilated (or do i mean jpeged out !) but 20240 is there if one squints a bit. I know we all like roundy-roundies but 6" is taking the err , ,  things a bit far !
