Just bought a load of G scale plastic track and an RC train from ECR to keep me busy in my retirement. Layout is complete now at about 500mm above the ground around a raised fish pond with a bridge. I've managed to do it by cutting and gluing rails with perspex joining bits made on my CNC router as in this plastic track kit there is only one size curve and straight (300mm) along with points. No other sizes are available so it won't join up when making random layouts. Now about to start maing accessories. 1st one I've made is buffers! Stops the train diving into the pond... No about to change the RC to longer range and control everything using arduino and chinese RC switches. I hope to enjoy this forum!
