For those of us that run trains, details please, I'm curious.
Do you refer to it as a layout? a pike?, a putz? a trainboard? or? I refer to mine as a layout, my mother always called it a trainboard no matter how big it became.
Does your "layout" have a name? Mine is Warrenville Railroad. It consists of Lisa-Marieville, Karentown, Absolute Yards, Warrenville Docks, Cape Warrenaveral and The Alcove.
Trackage: What gauge and brand of track? The Warrenville RR runs on over 575 feet of O27 height track, O42, 54 and 72 curves mostly, O27 on the lower level of The Alcove. These is also a S gauge loop on the upper level (traditional Gilbert Flyer track) of The Alcove and a N gauge amusement park ride neat the Absolute Yards. The O27 height track is enhanced with over 2,800 balsawood ties and kitty litter ballast. The Flyer track is on Flyer rubber roadbed.
