    Only you can answer that. How long will the average train be? How many locos? Do they have traction tyres? There's a lot of variables, if you're still not sure, set up a test grade and try running a...

    That's what I was referring to, the kit windows. Are they fiddly and/or difficult to use? Getting older, I find these laser cut parts can be difficult at times.

    How'd you find the windows? I've had trouble with those sort of windows in the past and have shied away from many laser kits because of them. While they look nice and the extra effort adds value to...

    Yep, looked at that. I'm undecided what to use just yet. Using hollowcore doors topped with extruded foam for the layout means space is limited to mount the servos. The photo in the link you had with...

    Nice layout and great idea, just a town terminus.
