Default Great tracks around the world?

So I was inspired by the "Fairbanks" thread to ask for people to post links to tracks that they think are the coolest they've seen. Routed, sectional...whatever.

This is one of my fav's.

Well, Dave, there are a ton of tracks to be found hosted at Luf's Archer Raceways site these days, but Yves' is definitely one of my favourites ..

Real tracks? I'll take Monaco, any day.

Hands down the nicest track that I have ever seen pictures of is Luf's - Targa Florio in Vancouver. As far as real world tracks go, I just love SPA.

Best one I saw was in 1/64, I think, a model of an F1 course with empty fields betwen the roadways. It was made in France in somebody's place of business (that they owned). It was literally a scale model of a race track. It looked better than anything else I've seen, before or after. Links? Who saves links?

Great idea!

I have been a long time admirer of the KatzSpaRing designed and built by Brad's tracks.



Hopefully I'm not infringing any copyrights by pasting these into the thread for now ...



This is a stunning track, one of a kind in the world, a piece of art; the most remarkable HO routed track anywhere on the planet that I know of.

You can look up the story behind it and more at these links:

Think of how much better it would look if the backdrop was not cluttered with 1:1 advertising and posters. Model railroaders often use the back wall to complete the diorama effect, and paint it as if it were the sky. A simple pale blue or white wall works better than a whole lot of clutter, in my opinion.

Gotta agree, the Katz Spa Ring is one heckuva track.

I had the pleasure of racing on that track once and it was the most beautiful track I had ever seen. Alas Greg died from brain cancer I heard.

Default What about?

Jason Boyle's "Le Monzaco"?



John Babcock's fully sceneried basement T-Jet track was very well done as well. I wish that I had some pictures of it to share.
