Welcome! Feel free to add any pic of your module progress here if you want.
Thanks, stuff on the way, so I should be able to get started in a week or so!
I'm reminded of what SWIFT stands for... Sure Wished I'd Finished Training".
Say, can someone tell me what the radius of the usable area from the inside corner to the edge of the inside trackbed on a 14" corner module?
If you know/measure the width of the roadbed for unitrack, then subtract half that from the stated (centerline) radius of the curve, you get the inside roadbed radius.
Yup, found it just a bit ago!
Found this video of a T-Trak module the kids went nuts over! Enjoy
Well rats...lemme try to find it again!
Okay guys, for future planning needs, how well do the factory Kato crossovers work, comparing the style with 2 switches to the style with 4 switches as single units? Is one type simpler or more reliable than the other?
Well, I have a Unitrack double crossover on one triple module, and the trains negotiate it without any issues. No bobbles or hitches passing through it.
I too have one on a triple and it works great. The wiring for T-trak standards don’t work with it tho, you will need to go BWBW or WBWB instead of the standard of BWWB.
As I use mine alone, no club or others in the vicinity, that is how mine is wired.
Thanks for that info! To keep things simple then I will just use the "dogleg" style switch. one on each side of the layout and just slice the joining rails.
