It's been a few years since I had chance to set up my track, but I was rummaging through a few old photos so I thought I might as well post them.

It's a temporary analogue Scalextric track, mixed Sport and Classic, with some attempt at scenery modules, buildings, figures, trees etc.

The scenery is made almost entirely from free materials, cardboard for borders, polystyrene packaging for the rock faces, collected heather and twigs for the trees, moss for the shrubby weeds, sawdust for the grass. and leaves, and scouring pads for hedges. The main cost for the scenery was in glue and paint.

I also painted a backdrop on a roll of cheap but fairly sturdy paper which I just about managed to get to stand up around the perimeter.

That's all for now folks. I guess one day I'll drag it all down from the attic and set it up again.

Thanks for the kind comments everyone.

Here are a few more photos...

This was from the beginning of the process of making the track dirty.

This is how it ended up. Although I later added some other features like cobbles, pot holes, manhole covers, and drains.

Another early shot. Experimenting with wine corks for stones. They were put through a kitchen blender then soaked in paint.

Big Bernie and his girlfriend don't look too impressed, they're probably cold. I did some work later to get the spectators more suitably dressed for an English winter.

Wise advice for all of us on the sign here.

Nice stuff. I have seen some of these pics on a website a while ago but didn't know that the track belonged to you.

It shows that one can have a nice track within a small confined space and the use of plastic does not limit the possibilities for great scenery.

I'm guessing the cones get a hammering if you use it in earnest? Or are you using magnets?
