The TT-Tracks.org web site needs to find a new home.
The Free Webspace provided by Telus for the last few decades, is going away the end of May.
I'll see what I can find for a free no ad web host, or a low cost one if I have to pay for it.

I need a set of track to test TT Scale stuff on without setting up modules.
I have started modifying some Kato HO scale Unitrack by adding g a third rail.
I hope to have a 21.5" radius oval when I am finished.

I start by gluing the rail in place then drill holes for Peco track fixing pins.
Working OK so far.

Is this because you don't have any 12mm gauge track?

I do not have enough loose Bedding track to make a circle.
Doing this will give me a big oval to test TT-Scale equipment on as well as an oval to test HO Scale equipment I work on for customers.

That's a good idea. I only have one straight piece of Tillig H0/H0m dual gauge track. That is only available as a flex track.

That is a great idea! I'll have to get a loop and try it myself.

The track is finished except for the power feeders. Four of the pieces will have wires soldered between the outer rail and the new rails.
The installation is far from perfect. There are a few wide or narrow spots. Testing will see if that is going to be an issue.

It looks like Bill has the same problem which I have with the rail cutter handles. Maybe I'll try gluing mine.
And next he'll want a 4th rail for N.
