The new track design has been selected and since we had a massive snow storm coming, I went and did this today:

Which turned into this:

Nothing like a new track. And with a great builder, this will be a true keeper to watch.

Kinda big for the space. Is this going to be on rollers? You cant get to anything behind it.

I should have said - the track is modular. I'm building in the garage and moving to the basement when the routing is done. Track manager gets nasty when she hears a router getting fired up in the house ;)

Great time to work on the track. And watching with much anticipation as a master builder works.

This looks like the beginning of another superb track.

Would just like to know what have you done to the previous PDR?

Your previous track was supurb.

Looking forward to seeing what layout you come up with. This should be good!

Preliminary routing done! I need to clean 2 easy boo-boos and trim off the extra table too parts. All corners are organic and done with a flex strip. Easiest routing I've ever done.

Should be a quick track - and a nice homage to RIR - not a replica. Have some cool scenic ideas for it!

Now, before everyone asks - no, there are no crossovers. No, there are no squeeze sections. Yes, the straight has a slight bobble as I wanted nothing on this thing perfectly straight.Image
