So 164cm by 76cm? A little bigger than we guessed it would be.

We might try to make a 3' x 6' portable layout showcasing the starter set of Keuhn track as an example of what is out there for TT.

Here is a template.

Copy them 1:1 and cut out. You can create your own plans from Kuehn tracks.

The basic set requires 164x76 cm space.

Worthwhile. The track and turnouts are good. But it's smaller code so larger flanges like BTTB might not work well. If I remember right my old rail bus hit the 'spikes', so I thought Tilllig track would be better for those.

Oooh, that may be a problem for us, as we have some converted BTTB locos that I would hate to sideline.

So, if I want to be able to run BTTB stuff in concert with everything else, I guess I am stuck with Tillig, or am I wrong?

For me, it's new, that the flanges hit the spikes. I haven't BTTB stuff, but I can measure for you the distance from the railhead to the spikes.

Thanks, that would help a lot with the track decision.

Does anyone have advice on how to reduce the flanges on BTTB motive power?
