    It works out to a main size of 1.8mtr X 4.5mtr or roughly 6ft X 14ft
    A slight bit longer than expected but I can happily reduce it if needed. As for the width, the 6ft gives me plenty of room to...

    So needless to say, i suck at using flex on XtrkCad, however here is a general updated thought process... looks average at best, but you can hopefully see where I am going with it.

    Thanks!
    I don't like the shape of it, but using flex track will be able to manipulate that away I guess. I am going to try and find a way to add a couple of industry spurs that don't interrupt the...
