4x8 FastTrack layout needed - 2 trains

4x8 FastTrack layout to accomodate two Lionel O Gauge trains running simultaneously needed. Does anyone have any ideas / pictures / list of specific track needed?

Just modify your track into block sections.

Then the basic manual applies for normal operation not DCC.
"T" stands for
Trains, Track, Trestles, and more Trains

How-To Column and Signature links Post number 4.

Links under O Scale Information

Thor's Train site may have some ideas for Fastrack on a 4x8


And try Classic Toy Trains (You may have to pay to get full access to all the diagrams). They do have a sorting menu to look for specific track type with layout sie

I'm with the U.S. Coast Guard and I'm here to help.

Note that Lionel has recently cataloged O-31 curves for Fastrack, might be just the ticket if you're trying to get two loops of Fastrack in a 4 x 8 layout.
