Hi everyoneCool


There is a marklin site to find layout plans in HO and track C.

Could you give me the link?

Thank you

Hi everyone Cool

The curve 24130 is banned at home, the minimum curve is the 24230.

At first glance in the marklin link that Jean gave me, to date, there are only 2-3 proposals for plans with the curve 24230 but I have not examined everything

Have a nice day

Why not design your own layout. Gives great satisfaction to know it is unique and all your own work
Take care I like Marklin and will defend the worlds greatest model rail manufacturer.

Often one only has a limited space or if fortunate enough a large space. Design the layout to fit the space, factoring in gradients & radiuses, being the main issues.

Hello all,
I based my C track layout on a Märklin plan from the starter set booklet in 2005.
It was sophisticated enough to use one of each of the Märklin C1, C2, C3, C4 and C5 track sets which will expand the basic oval.

As I gained more and more space I was able to incorporate my own ideas but the basics remain.
I have never had to use a track planning program.
My hobby idea is to keep it simple.

What is the status on your Richelieu Valley project? As I remember, you had a set own-designed track plan for that?

Hello Pefu

The project is still under construction but it is taking longer to finish. To come back to the subject of the post, I'm planning for the future because it's not certain that we'll stay where we are now, I just want to be a source of info on the C track plans

A good source of information can't hurt, I guess, can it?

Another source of layout plans are the articles in Marklin Magazine.

The layout plans themselves are downloadable as a PDF file from the Marklin web pages.
