I have noticed the in a lot of articles that tinplate layouts are just simple loops and have no switches for intricate switching. Is it more common to just use simple loops or do you like to do switching or have a spur or a side track passing spur.
Do the engines have trouble with the front trucks on switches.
I don't believe in lots of switches, but like occasional sidings, thinking about adding one to my Standard gauge loop.
BTW. I'm using standard gauge track.
