It seems to me that the last approach could be the best, so go for # 2 [or rather, # 3]. The abridging drop-down-LC/digi-piece concept is simply brilliant, thus you also get a more versatile track configuration. Change direction of the track, for instance.

And at that, you could also try out the different digi systems if wanted, by making short transition-pieces at each end of the drop-down-LC/digi-piece. The half-loops may have in some way be prepared/pre-installed for all the different systems though? ..

Also, if wanted, you could put in an extra middle section and you´d still get both an analog/digi-track. No parts wasted. Hmm .. this reminds of or seems very close to Gazza´s tracks .. with modules and different add-on-parts ..

.. cheers ..

Nice to see this afloat again .. I´ve had too much coffee to drink maybe .. but anyway, here´s a few ideas, Bill ..

-- If you chose to do the main straight as an motorway overpass or bridge in a lean arch, the pond or a small stream in the valley underneath would fit in. [level 1] .. great spot here for an angry fisherman, as rallycars ruin his day.
-- Also, if the overpass is on [double] pillars at the edge of roadway, [grey dots, which are hard to see, sorry] perhaps some 12-16' up to the top [from level 1] gives room for some extra sqeezed loops under it, behind the pillars at right [blue streched line] without a viewblock. You also gain some feet of extra track.
-- The very left hand end of the bridge could be 4-8' lower than the right hand part, thus the arch runs slightly upwards, left to right and levels out at the middle of the right section,
-- Left hand rally section could be almost level, the esses under the bridge at right runs in uphill slope towards right corner. All this to add some scenic interest.
-- Some weaving on bridge could be necessary to get through between the oil barrels [red dots, red line the armco on bridge] or have it just as a full speed straight line.
-- The barrels at right at the front edge between two bends in rally course could be swapped for a yump [or a hump?], if wanting to run *the fast course*, just a long, biggish loop.



Any good? .. [sorry about the crappy picture, it should be 800 wide, and a bit sharper]
