Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Before we move on to my next series, this is a video for DR35 who is looking for a particular Hornby track plan.

This i believe is the one we’ve being discussing. It’s from the Hornby track plans 6th edition booklet. The plan is number 9/6 from page 18 & 19.Any way i hope this is the one DR35 is looking for. So for any other model railway / railroad fans who are looking for a track plan, you may like this. The base board size is 9 foot long by 4 foot wide & is on two levels.

New series up next.Cheers.

@jmsschooner If taken off to be run with out, then you'll need to change the wheels that would have the tyres on. This is so to match the same wheel RP. For running a full 9 car unit (one set of here for real is now 11 car!!) traction tyres will be needed.

ay76 says:

@jmsschooner If kept clean & check regular for any splits etc, should be okay. Traction tyres, a big source of debate amongst many modellers.

ay76 says:

@jmsschooner Again that i'm putting down to the wheels & pick ups possibly not being clean enough. Also check to see if any wires are broken on it. Running on tight radius curves like 2nd radius can cause the wires to stretch & brake, hence go for 3rd radius & above……plus the Hornby points don't really help as they are to tight a radius (express version better). Going for Peco medium & larger radius much better for it.

@jmsschooner The one for lillybank, i redrew the altered track plan (modified from the Hornby plan) for it. Sadly I no longer have the track plan i drew up. In hindsite, for it to suit the likes of your class 390 etc, it would have to be redrawn to allow for the bigger radius curves (& points) needed. So you'd be now looking at a bigger size base board than the 8 by 4 foot i used. May be one for you to have a go at drawing up??

ay76 says:

@jmsschooner sizes shown on the left & also bottom of the page (4 foot by 9 foot) Bad news is this has 1st radius curves, (So your pendolino won't run round part of it) so you'd need to up the radius to a bigger on & re work the track plan to that. Also means you'll need a bigger board. This plan is from the 6th edition book.
