    today one of those lazy i don't wanna do nuttin days , but bored so i needed sumtin ta do kinda thing.:rolleyes:
    i was playing in scarm just piddling around and came up with this weird track .
    started out trying to just find the right curves for two # 6 turn outs and would up with this :)
    not planning on build just messing around. too hot to work out side didn't feel like messing with my layout either.
    I'm still waiting on some parts namely a motor shield for one of my Arduino's. feel like i need to make a very small test layout ( i dunno why ) maybe to test locos ,speed match possibly............(y)

    Size? Kinda involved for a test track, but could be a nice layout that doubles for testing! Not sure what the tiny siding between the curves on the right end is for.

    Also, beware the S-curves on the bottom side.

    i was just messing around in scarm no plans to build . i have not decided on a test track yet. if i do it will an oval , just big enough to test locos speed matching. im still waiting on Amazon or flea bay cant remember where i ordered parts from right now.......
    shoot i dont even know where i could put a test track right now......

    I know what you mean. I often try to "copy' others' layout designs, but in Unitrack (what I use) just to see what it would be like, or to see what I might change to make it more to my liking. It's cheap entertainment/occupation for a retired guy when it's too dang hot (or cold) to do anything outside or in the garage shop.

    I have an N scale treadmill (rollers). Not really a full replacement for a test track (e.g. no speed matching or curves), but I can get it out and set it up quickly and easily. I guess the same goes for a small loop of Unitrack, but that needs more room than the treadmill.
