Hornby O-gauge track layout
Autumn 2017 to Spring 2018
'Dumbbell' with sidings inside one loop and 'branch line' with run-around siding connected via a reversing triangle
Storage sidings at bookshelves end of lounge
Total running track about 100 feet (plus sidings). Scaled up this is over 1,300 yards.
So a train starting from the branch line terminus, doing a full circuit of the dumbbell and running back to the
branch line terminus had completed nearly 2,600 scale yards, which is approximately one-and-a-half miles.
The clockwork motors required winding several times…
