In Episode 2 of building the Great Central Railway Mike Wild and Richard Watson continue development of our brand new model railway layout. This time the team are focusing on all things track, from laying Peco's bullhead flexible track to wiring and baseboard joints. Watch Episode 2 here to see how we get trains running.
In this video Mike explains how he chooses a starting point, the critical elements to make your trains run smoothly and all the considerations you need to make when laying down the line.
Above: The GCR layout was built alongside Topley Dale in the Hornby Magazine workshop.
THE SECOND PART of our Great Central Railway project joins Mike in the workshop as he explains how he goes about planning and laying track and then adds the wiring to make it possible to run trains through Quorn Magna station and the station of Swithland Sidings on the opposite side of this 16ft x 8ft 'OO' gauge project.
