LGB 2 is my second garden railway layout at my new house of 2 years ago."I have a track plan for the LGB 2 but "
what is LGB2 ? what do you mean ?
for system control , I would suggest to open a new thread !!
As mentioned earlier in this thread, mine is also at the the moment a simple dogbone with no points. It was placed loose on a new raised bed at the end of the garden that has a gravel top dressing. Being new I knew it would settle over time so didn't worry making anything complicated as it would have to be lifted when it was topped up. Like you there are plans but at the moment I can still run trains when I want. Maybe this year a passing loop might appear.I put my line on here, but looking at the marvellous empires created by the posters,I don't really want to be shamed! My line is basically an odd shaped dog-bone, no points or cross overs. I laid as a trial to see if I could construct something cheaply with scrounged pavoir bricks, as it seems to work, this year will see some sort of extension
This has been done several times over the years, this is the link to the last survey that I could find.I hope everyone feels free to share. It would be a shame if mutual interest was compromised. I think this is a very democratic and supportive forum. I have really enjoyed seeing everyones ideas, big or small.
I was wondering if there would be any mileage or interest in sharing operating systems. How many of these layouts are DCC, run live steam of rely on radio control?
Greg, I really hate to say this, but I do agreeAs in posts #41 and #42, let's keep this to track plans, instead of opening the door to discussions of DCC systems, etc. It's really nice to keep to the topic and make this a nice reference thread where forum people can see the variety and creativity of track plans. I was really enjoying this thread up until now.
The "whose DCC system is best" is a battle never won, and then the battery guys will come in and argue battery is better, and we are off to the races with another thread that started useful and degenerates into competition.
Please take the DCC and power stuff to a NEW thread... (and I wish you well!)
Yeah, it sort of evolved over the years, but the last track was laid a few years ago, and the main effort now is maintenance and improving/adding structures.
I answered that question in post # 45 Jon.

I have always used DCC power since I started in 2005. I do have one battery Rc loco. I have also owned 4 live steamers.
I’m not sure that pictures would help me wrap my head around the complexity of your railroad, but I would still like to try. If you have photos available, would you direct me where to look. Thank you.Yeah, it sort of evolved over the years, but the last track was laid a few years ago, and the main effort now is maintenance and improving/adding structures.
