    Who has the longest track for HO cars or does anyone know what the longest recorded is

  • #2
    I read a story in some old HO mag from the 60's about a guy who built an outdoor track in CA that was over a 1,000 yards long. I can't remember the details though. I'll see if I can find the story over the weekend and get back to you.

      Great I would like to hear about that, how about the tracks that people have now currently running, post on here how ling yours is. I am just getting back into it and I think mine is about 25 foot but it is for sure going to grow to about 100 foot four wide. I have 3 nephews ages 3, 3 and 4 that love the track so far.

        I live in an NYC apartment, any track I set up is around 25 feet and I can only leave it set up of a few days. I'm more of as collector of cars than a racer.

            SK: I think your talking about Mr. Bill's old layout. I never got to run on it, but I always hear that it was pretty amazing.

              I have pictures of the track in Florida, it was a huge MaxTrax. Since most of the track was difficult to reach I couldn't imagine racing on it, just retrieving cars must have been a pain.

                  Darrell Kuhl in Olney, Illinois at Telstar Model Raceway has a Tyco track that is approx 210 feet, 2 27' straights, 2 20' straights and a few curves thrown in. He has been racing in the same location since 1972.

                      Rumor has it that there is a 2000 foot track somewhere around Bloomington, Indiana, but I'm not sure about that one.

                          The UK LeMans track does hold one of the longest track records as it is entirely routed! 8 lanes and 240 some feet in length.

                            If we're talking about HO Scale; Steve the "UPS Guy" did a 600 foot track once and sent me the video. There were pictures of that and other large tracks he built on the Hobby Talk BBS. I think his handle at Hobby Talk is "Tall22".
