Thanks for the comments guys. It was tight, to get it all to fit I had to use two half R2 standard curves. These saved the day as it allowed that slight angle (22 degrees).

We ran some cars on the layout last weekend, and its ACE! Ninco F1s are great, because the NC2 motor has a lot of magnetic effect.

In answer to MrFlippant, the complete board is going to be hinged to the wall, so that it can put vertically out of the way when not in use. This is proving frustrating, as there is a LOT of weight. I am using five heavy-duty hinges, however they need beefing up with a weld, as one of them bent!

More pics to follow....

Thanks for the advice guys, the hinges seem to be strong enough so its just a case of installing the ratchett pulley and cable to winch it up.

Yes indeed, there were crash barriers there before but felt better to have it open. I'll probably use some sort of filler then sand to finish.
