10 TOP TIPS
ABOVE: Sectional track pieces are the simplest to join and lay. Each component comes with pre-fitted rail joiners and they are all made to suit specific geometry. Select the right components using the diagrams available from Hornby and Peco and you can start building straight away. The same type of sectional track is delivered as part of train sets.
ABOVE: To join two pieces of track a smooth and level surface is advisable. Bring the two parts together and locate the bare rail ends into the rail joiners on the others. Gently start the process of pushing the parts together ensure that the rails sit inside the joiners.
