Hi...Can someone help me convert this to a Fastrack layout (Not Realtrack) with some type of train software-                               I wanted to know how many different track sizes/pieces needed & where wire buses to every piece goes- the length & width of table is not a problem I can go bigger if needed-I am using Fastrack because it`s what came with my 3 sets- It would be greatly appreciated!- I am new to the hobby & could use a little help!- Thanks!-Sal

@Sal V I found this reply from you in another topic with a larger image of what appears to be the same layout as the smaller image above.

Your question here is where to put the bus wires.  Answers would depend on your choices for the following questions:

  1. Which side of the layout will your transformer(s) will be located?
  2. Will you be operating: Conventionally, Lionel TMCC/Legacy, Lion Chief, and/or MTH DCS?
  3. If conventional operation is desired, do you want to control more than one locomotive at a time?
  4. Do you want to divide the layout into electrical power districts or blocks?


Detailed answers would be helpful.
