Ok, I am hoping to get some posts and discussion on this -
I just picked up some of this Gargraves Track that works with O Gauge and Standard Gauge. The quality is really very nice.
Here is my problem - I have a limited amount of space. I need wide curves. I want to run my standard gauge race cars and an oval of 2 7/8 gauge as well.
Bending this Gargraves Track makes me nervous. Bending any track makes me kind of nervous. Also, I can kiss switches goodbye with the Gargraves track, they don't exist (spoke to one of the guys at Gargraves).
I have a ton of O Gauge stuff I really like to run as well as standard gauge. So what do I do?
3 ovals of track - Standard, O and 2 7/8? Buy a bigger house? Use the Gargraves and get a nice big oval for O gauge and standard? Where am I going to put my brass mountain and my 116 station and 840 Powerhouse?
Which track works best for everyone else? What track plans have you seen that work well for places that aren't huge.
Most standard gauger's seem to have 3000 square foot basements that are finished. I just don't have that.
