Well, it has been over a year since I have posted anything about my layout. Too bad that there isn't really anything to post about since then... I have bought all the point motors needed and had a slight fiasco with the base boards meaning we have to rebuild them in some areas due to the main structure of it being in the way for some of the points... Anyways, something good has come out of this meaning that there will be some sort of height variation in the layou other than just a hill in the corner. Hoping to get this done at some point in the next few months so that the track can all be laid properly.

More updates coming soon (hopefully)

Follow up from the previous message, what is the ideal gradient for a track to be, obviously as shallow as possible, but what would be the maximum that people have used?

A lot depends on what you want to run up the gradient and whether there are curves involved but I would suggest a minimum of 1 in 50
