Track plan Help

Postby jackshepherd » Tue Jan 15, 2019 2:23 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm planning on creating this layout http://www.freetrackplans.com/Hornby-8G.php and would like some help on what Peco set track I will need to create it please.

I'd not had the model bug for a while but seeing Hornby's 2019 announcements brought it back. Only having my bedroom for a location for a model railway has always meant I couldn't build anything big, but this time i'm doing something different, as the above layout i'm building will just be plain track on a board with removable buildings, so I can place it against my bedroom wall when not in use, as I've always been more interested in the rolling stock and locomotives (all GWR stock) rather than the layout they run on. Thanks in advice for the help.

There is a table here http://www.newrailwaymodellers.co.uk/track-conversion.htm which gives the equivalent Peco vs Hornby part numbers. Here is an explanation of the geometry of the track used. https://www.hornby.com/media/pdf/Track-Geometry-PDF.pdf

Good luck with your project

This Signature Left Intentionally Blank, but since I have written this and I intended to do it, this Signature is intentionally not blank. Paradox or What?
