  • Another guy...From Eldon in the 60's to HO in the 70's and now back to Eldon!

    standard.jpgstandard.jpgHello everybody!
    I'm newly retired, due in part to covid. With all the time on my hands I have got my 1:1 scale cars (MGs) licked into shape, and had an AHA! moment and decided to get back into slot cars.
    I was looking at Scalextric but decided to dip my toe in the pool and put together an Eldon track to see if I would still enjoy slots before committing to an expensive modern system.
    I bought a pile of track on Craigslist (some good, some junk) and bought more on E-bay. I expect the rest of my bits and pieces to arrive this coming week so I spent the weekend reorganizing my very full garage and building a 4x8 foot table to get started. I'm looking forward to getting a layout up and running!

    Welcome to SCI Rich. Nice sturdy looking table. Look forward to seeing your progress.

      I'm happy with the table but it's amazing how big it looked until I placed the banked curve on it.
      That made it look small. I am going to have to be creative to get a decent amount of track on it.
      Future plans include an extension but I have to sell a big car to make room in the garage!

        Welcome from a fellow Vancouverite! Well, Richmond actually but still part of the greater Vancouver area.

        Not sure if you are familiar with our merry band of slotters in the GVRD? Known as the GVSCC (Greater Vancouver Slot Car Club). Activities have pretty much ground to a Covid-enforced grinding halt but we WILL restart at some stage. Let me know if you would like more info.

          Hi Alwyn! I lived in Richmond until 4 years ago. I'm now in South Surrey.
          I hadn't heard of the GVSCC but wouldn't mind checking the club out when (if?) things get back to normal.
          Cheers, Rich

          The mailman delivered a box of track today so I worked out a possible layout. Looks like I will be spending the next few days cleaning and mounting track.
