Red face Pierluk's layout

Hello,
My name is Pierre and I'm a newbie in 00 scale. I try to build a small layout and I drawn a track plan with Anyrail but it doesn't work. I surely made a few mistakes. Does anyone could help me ? Thanks.

Just use some flexi track instead to form the curves.

Thanks. Don't know why but I can't do that with my Anyrail free version.
I also have a plan B.

Really the best way to track lay is to get track down on the boards. To hell with computer programs they just waste hours of time. We did not have computers when most on here started.

Get a length of Flexy either Peco or Hornby Most prefer Peco. Or what every you are using. Make sure the rail profile is the same as you are using. I expect it is code 100. That would be my advice. Then you can get playing trains instead of playing computers.

You are absolutely right. I ordered all the track sections needed a few minutes ago (Hatton's).

Even if it doesn't fit on AnyRail, in real world laying model track it still may fit. Especially where the use of R610 or ST202 are concerned as shown by the follow-up posts.

Most things can be made to fit if you use some flexi. Set track is not forgiving.
