  1. HO Scale
    I'd like to buy EZ track for my HO scale train, running the Bachman brand locomotive you see in the picture. Right now the locomotive jumps the track pretty often. Someone suggested I buy larger radius track, but I don't know which radius to buy. I'm not even sure the radius I have already. But...
  2. Layout Design Forum
    Hi Guys, I found something cool today and just wanted to share it for others who might me looking for something similar. They are called sweep sticks and used to shape flex track or making hand laid track. They come in any radius you want and all scales. Here is the link...

  7. N Scale
    Ok so I am planning my layout and I wanted some advice on minimum radius for track. I want to do my layout with a loop so I can have a train continously running. I plan on doing steam engines era 1920ish and I heard steam can be more finicky on turns. Thanks
