Ah... Track planning in full size. I am right there with you. That is the only system I have to make sure it will all work when it is built.

Happily modeling the STRATTON & GILLETTE RAILROAD located in a world of plausible nonsense set in August, 1954.

How do you do a 1:1 scale mock-up with flex track I don´t know, but a well planned paper plan works as well, if you don´t cut corners and cheat on yourself when it comes to radii, switches and distance between parallel tracks.

We do have a ruff plan on paper to make sure it will fit the room.
