HO Freight Train vs Slot Cars - With jump, crossings, figure 8 layout and crashes!
Playing with our slot cars and HO train on 4x8 table. This time with a jump across the track, a figure 8 train layout, and of course, the road crossing. More carnage, some intentional, some not. Featuring our NASCAR cars - with my used Bellsouth stock car.
This is built on the 4x8 table that we normally use for building our Lego models and sets. My son has been wanting to play with the slot cars for awhile, so we cleared off the Lego and set up a simple layout using our Atlas Tru-Trak and Aurora & Tyco slot car track. Used already beat-up cars and train. Seaboard Air Line IHC cars and Engine with the front coupler missing.

Minic Motorway & Triang Railways Road/Rail layout
A fantastic Triang Minic Motorways and Triang/Hornby Super 4 railway layout in OO, or HO for our continental cousins!
A train approaching a road crossing automatically stops the slot roadway vehicles, once the train is clear, the roadway is re-energised, and the vehicles circulate. A magnet under the loco trips and resets a relay, which controls power to the stop sections. The sharp eyed will spot the change of vehicle halway through!
Layout by Dave White, and was displayed at the Beckenham Vintage train show in April 2011.

HO Scale Layout
Quick walk around of my train layout. In the process of extending the layout along the wall around the back of the mechanical room with a 18" wide shelf/modular design. The layout is modeled after the present day Norfolk Southern's Pittsburgh Line from Pittsburgh to Harrisburg, PA.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to get 4 kids, ages 5-13, to try to drive these things SLOW and stay together? They did a good job, all things considered...
