When I`ve been posting pics of cars a few people have asked me to post an overview of my Scalextric layout.
This is the best I can achieve with my camera. Everything is vintage, even the throttles. Each lane has it`s own power supply.
The layout is 26 years old. It has moved house once with me. Maintenance is by cleaning the rails with an oily rag & dusting the plastic only. No power loss at any track point & not a single power tap anywhere!
Cheers,
Kev

Thank-you chaps. Unfortunately I think that we`re a dying breed...

Here`s an overview of my vintage 1/40 scale Jouef/Champion Playcraft layout. I have all accessories which were available in the catalogue. However, I use Scaley throttles because the old Jouef throttles are a bit of a fire hazard. Had to take a couple of pics because of it`s awkward shape. There`s over 130 Corgi Silverstone Series spectators, pit crew & press officials on the layout...given the rarity of these figures it must be some sort of a record (seated figures in Grandstands are cheapies from Hong-Kong)?
Cheers,
Kev.







Not used on this layout(for obvious reasons). The Leap Of Death & Rocking Road.

Great stuff Kev, thanks for posting. I had good fun identifying the listed items on the Scalextric track !!

I had always thought that the control centre had a square plan base but can see it is not as deep as it is wide...

Thanks Leo & Rich,
The Scaley layout is about 14ft 6inch x 6ft Rich.
The Jouef layout is 10ft long & 5ft at it`s widest point.
Running length??? Haven`t got a clue!

Cheers,
Kev.

Hi Kev,

It is great to look at the pictures of your vintage tracks.
I like them very much.
Taking the picture from outside into the garage would even give a better result.
In this way, the light is behind you, not against you.
I would be very pleased to see some more pictures of your vintage Scalextric track.
Well done,

Hub

Just chipping in here to say that I have had the pleasure of driving on these tracks and they are great, particularly the Scaley, smooth as you like and surprisingly quick with the old throttles. They do actually look even better in the "flesh", which is more than I can say for Kev!

Love the plan...

Looks great Kev.Having moved house i now have a garage at long last.Seeing all my classic Scaley stuff boxed up has given me the urge to return to slots.Planning on a classic track soon.Will start a thread in a month or two.Your track inspires me.Thinking of two 8x4 boards in a L shape.Got lots of chicanes and old skool bits i have never used.
Cheers dd
