    Default Flextrack is prototypical

    Interesting video on Virtual Railfan.

    At the 01:32 mark - 1:1 scale flex track.

    I don't always stop for trains, but when ... oh wait!, Yes I do.

    YUP that is LaGrange KY. Just up the road from Louisville. Neat to go up to LaGrange, go eat in track side restaurant, and have CSX put on a show. Never been up there and NOT seen trains roll thru. Restaurants learned real quick that trackside seats can be in demand.

    So, they just eyeballed it straight? I never saw them align that wiggly flex track up against a metal ruler.

    4:08 - I wonder if the excavator guy even knows he almost put the brakes on all the work going on.

    I didn't see any POWER SUPPLY LINES.......are they running DCC? Hope their SOLDER joints between the rails don't break.
