Great Dexter - Converting Settrack Design into a Model Railway

Hi

 

The diagram below is the same track layout as the final photograph in my first post.

From the Settrack layout, to a design which forms the basis of a convincing model railway is a complex process. When flexible track replaces Settrack this gives the ability to make loops and sidings the correct distance apart, in this case closer together.

The diagram below is the final track plan, which is designed to be smaller, but still to have the model railway look, rather than the toy train set appearance. The dead end siding has been replaced by a cassette.

The plan below show the same track layout, as shown above, but shows the left hand flap folded below the main part of the layout. This is to minimise the size to make it possible to transport the layout as hand luggage on public transport, such as on trains.
