Been meaning to do this for a long while now but last night decided to give it a go. It took a lot of beer drinking Friday night for me and a mate to make this. Spent Saturday debugging it due to power droppage and niggly track probs.





In and back out the kitchen:



Back through the lounge and out to the hallway



In and out the crapper



Back to the hallway and to the lounge




So who wants to come round and play :D

Cheers, yeah there are bits left over. I was going to run the track through to the bedrooms but the gap under the door is too tight for the track. I was tempted to have the doors off and plane the bottoms though :D

I got a jigsaw, you can cut out squares for the cars to go thru

When does the wife get back from holiday?
April 16th :smoke:

Yep we did get pretty pissed making it, so no chance on filming that properly.

Have been doing some more testing as the car's were slowing down when halfway round the track. Today we spent an hour going round checking how strong the continuity is. We had some joins apart, cleaned and adjusted the contacts. The car's are much faster and we're down to using one transformer now instead of 2 independant ones.

Just showed the wife. She said you wouldn't do that. I said no, I would do a 4 lane just to annoy you
