    That IS a fun layout. Lots to it, but not too complicated.

      I like it! Any chance of a schematic? The pic is too small to accurately make out the sections/curves used.

          Don't have a schematic, but can give you a track list. I can take closer pics if needed.

          24- 15" straights
          2- 6" straights
          11- 9" 1/4 curves
          3- 15" curves
          9- 12" curves
          21- 6" curves
          5- 9 1/8 curves
          2- 12" straights

            Very nice. That's a good AFX Magnatraction or Non-Mag layout.

              Closer pics taken from as straight overhead as possible would be a big help! Thanks!

                Thanks, if you get some good shots, I will plug it into a track layout program and post the picture. You get naming rights of course!

                  I worked it out (maybe) on Tracker 2000 and this is what I came up with. On a 4x8 board it just fits lengthwise and does not really leave room for turn borders which I would want.





                  I attached these as PDF files, the first filled in, the second sort of a skeleton view, because the limit on posting jpegs was too low to be useful.

                    Here's a revision that opens out some corners but shortens the overall length to allow space for turn borders on a 4x8 table.




                    Pretty nice layout with room to tweak it.

                      That is pretty close. Long straight has only 5- 15" straights. Otherwise that is spot on. There is room for track borders on your 1st layout if desired. Thanks for the PDF. Nice work!

                        Cool, I will have to mess with it a bit more.

                          Was the track built with Tomy track? I assume so. You indicated in the track part list 2 - 12" sections, but Tomy doesn't make a 12". When I worked it out by zooming in, I couldn't quite make out some of it.

                            Sorry....that is 2- 9" straights. Yes it is Tomy track. I just start snapping track together until I ran out of space. I'll try your revised layout tonight. It cuts out a few 6" turns.

                              Very nicely done! I'd love to run some of my favorite Aurora (non- competition) T-Jet cars on that one.
                              Thanks for the look, and... Enjoy! -- Ernie :>)
