Default The Little Big Eight

Hello,
I built this very small On30 /HO/OO scale layout (1.20 x 0.65 m) just for the fun. The radius of the curves is 250mm. It's 6.4% grade everywhere (I hope I use the right words). The clearance at the bridge is 80mm.
I used HO track: old Fleischmann curves (6020) and two Hornby straight sections (R601) slightly shortened. I'm very happy with the result.
Pics speak better than words. Videos ASAP. Have fun !

They seem to run very well considering the steepness of the track and the tight curves.

Thanks. But only very short trains can run.
