Double mains done

Closed loop on double mains over weekend (3/1/08). Still some yard work to left to do on layout but can run trains now! This is an N scale layout approx. 2.5' x 4'.

      Hi there, a great layout and some nice track work. I am in the process of building one simular but a little longer in length to run my passenger trains. Could you tell me what radius are the curves and what grades are the inclines ?

      Not sure how long ago you asked but I believe tightest radius on the inner mains was 9-3/4" and on outer it was 11". It's all 2% grade except for the section from about the front right most outer corner bed going counter clockwise to the double bridge at the back in the photo - that section is 3% which was a mistake - I didn't realize it until I had glued it down. It was supposed to be 2% all around. Although my trains run ok on that stretch - I would have preferred to have kept it at 2% - I think it works better in N-Scale to keep the grades slight.
