Got some great insight on the other post I made about the train derailing so thought I most post this up.

Below I linked a video (not the best angles) of the incomplete layout after we moved it yesterday. We will have a 3rd loop in the middle and use 4 of the basic turnouts to create parking spots for 4 trains in the middle (I'm short a few straights which I have since ordered)

I also ordered another #5/#6 turnout so he can cross all the tracks without reversing at least one way.

27" radius track on the outside, table is appox 10" x 4".


Anything I can do with the limited space to spice it up a bit for my 5yo son to make it more interactive - he just loves controlling the switches and just going round but I'm interested in adding more elements for him.

Is there a cheapish way to add another level / raised section with something pre-fabbed? I have some second hand pier sets but they don't seem very solid.

My bad - I should have written 22 radius....the 18 radius on inner loops, 22 radius on the outside

If you are looking for action there are some things that actually do what they model, loading and unloading train cars for example. I don’t know any details though.
