Been away for a week or so, got back and stopped in at Toys R Us at our shopping mall to see if any post-2003 Scalextric has arrived. I was rather dismayed to find that just two rather unloved packs of pit crews and some rather shop soiled yellow Subarus were all that the Scalextric area contained, but as I wandered out I spotted something in the bargain bucket - two X2 Batman begins sets at £30 each and packs of track for £2.

Bought both the sets and four packs of R1 corners and hey presto... Hermann Tilke eat your heart out!!

The original:



And my £65 version...



Is it me or is Scalextric track getting like Big Macs... never as big as you remember!





By the way, if anyone's in need of a Batmobile or two... or some of those crossroads things... be happy to reach a VERY good price!

Like your thinking there Van. That may well be an option. But you're right and for now such luxuries as crossover track are somewhat secondary to borders! Originally I thought it would be a good idea to use MDF but I'm buying the real stuff and the MDF will be used to make a base that can convert my dining table into a slot track and then be packed away afterwards.

It's amazing how much space evn a little layout like this can take up. On the upside, however, I hope that the short straights will mean extended life for my cars once friends start to come round and the inevitable crashing begins!
