Help with designing your track work
4 posts • Page 1 of 1
hi, as i have previously stated i am a novice to all this new gear. last time i did a layout it was just a case of slapping down some straights and curves. i have had my layout using used hornby track with mainly r1 and some r2 curves. running on them were a hornby bo-bo , hornby mallard and stock and a hornby dmu unit all dcc. i have now decided to replace all my track with new peco including points. on reading up a bit on minimum radii i was surprised to find that my locos shouldn't have performed an the above hornby radii track but they did. as i have now ordered my track to fit my board i am worried i may have problems which i didn't have before. am i getting a complex? the above locos all state having a minimum radius of r2 but as i have said they were going fine on r1 bends. any comments to put me at ease would be great.
yes, really don't know what i was thinking. if the locos ran well on the old track then should be no problem on the new. after all i am not doing a full circle with r1. i am putting this down to an age thing. thanks for reply.
