I would use #2. In the left corner I would make a small change, that the two lanes are not crossing. so you can work total on one level, thats a lot easier.

My suggestion is not to use the plastic material, but the electric. you can add extra opto sensors, solenoids and so you can build everything in a routed track.

QUOTE (1eye101 @ 25 Sep 2007, 20:38) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Hi Bill
I too am pondering this for my next track. Rather than placing plastic pieces with wood I'm going to try and take the gubbings out of the xlcs (with flippers) and power base and build them into my track. I've just had a look at the gubbings and although tricky I think it would be achievable. My purpose for this is so I can make the changing lane 3 times the length as it is now and incorporate it into 3 lanes. Good luck with yours


I´m doing this myself in the moment. my experience is:

for the flipper use 3mm axes which you shorted and hold it with imbus-ring??
buy extra solenoids, they are stronger and you can place them direct under the track, peco PL10E.
use extra optosensors, so you have to drill only one little hole in your track.

if you want to make it more easier, use extra optos for the start lane and seperate the light-bridge from the lane and put it direct in the wood.

so you need only a lot of little holes in your routed track.

if I´m finished I will post some pictures.

greeting andreas
