Only one option then................rip it all up and start again. :roll:

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

Hi Steve - In the long run I think I may have to live with it. To realign the main line would require a fairly major rebuild of the curve. The radius becomes more pronounced ( due to the width of the layout/room) once the main lines enter the tunnel - they terminate in a curved point just inside the...
