N Scale Bachmann

Roberto wants to model N scale and asks readers:

“I want to start laying a small track within a space of 24″x48″ I bought Bachmann tracks and wish to form a layout using these tracks. Someone could help me providing with some layout plans showing the tracks identification please?”

    I don’t like Bachmann track because in my opinion it’s stiff. I use flex silver track gets better conduction.Now if you want to use Bachmann track, buy silver. If you have to make curves put the track in vice and with a tourch and heat it up to bend it.

  • Dale Arendssays:

    That’s backwards. Generally you design a layout plan first and determine the need track from that. There’s no good way to design a track plan for you without knowing exactly what track pieces you have.

  • Frank Bsays:

    There are many books available with track plans for many sizes, scales and concepts.
    Visit model railroad exhibitions for ideas.
    Does the manufacturer’s site have plans and suggestions ?

  • Ed McEnteesays:

    You can also google “2×4 N scale layout plans” for some great ideas.

  • Norman Chippssays:

    Also check the manufacturers info for the minimum turn radius for the engines that you plan to run. You can be building a problem if your engines and the cars require a 11 or 12 inch turn radius.
