Any suggestions on how to layout atlas super flexi track as a template before final placement. Also, best way to lay down same track on foam trackbed for final. Thanks for any suggestions...Happy Railroading Smiley

This information is readily available in any of the books on trackwork published  by either atlas  or  Kalmbach  Publishers at any Hobby Store.

Dear Art,

What is the minimum radius curve you want to use?

If tabletop, what size?  For example: 4 ft x 8ft or 42" x 60".

If around the room or shelf, what is the largest radius curve you want?

What turnouts (make, model) are you planning to use?

Get a wooden yardstick for a trammel, a 1/8" drill and large chunks of cardboard to make your own templates.  The sizes (radii) you would draw and cut depend on your answers to the questions above.

Sincerely,

Joe Satnik

If your loco is too heavy to lift, you'd better be able to ride in, on or behind it.
