Just another push (Lee needs one every now and then) for Bachmann to do a larger radius large scale track for indoor use.  I am looking for tack to use at trains shows that can be set up and torn down quickly and will run larger equipment then the 'R1' radius that Bachmann has.

The turnouts can even have the same 'throw' mechanism as the 'R1' turnouts.  The track should be able to do simple passing sidings with out the use of 'adapter' sections.  The old LGB 'R5' had this, the LGB 'R3' did not.  The straight section of the LGB 'R3' turnouts we 10 mm to short.

The 'R5' radius of 2318 mm, 91.25" would be acceptable.  Longer straight sections say 600 mm, 900 mm, and 1200 mm.  A proper 'terminal' track would help, as would insulating sections, both straight and curved.

Tell Lee we need it yesterday!
