L       Thanks        As a new member to I did the  introduction and mentioned that I had two 4 lane analogue layouts at home.  As I was asked to post some photos, here goes.... Time 

The Routed Raceway.
My first track we  built.   4 lane analogue, slot Routed into MDF. Cooper tape for power pick up.
Surface painted with Ultra smooth masonry paint.
Power via a Fusion PS201 adjustable power supply. 5 - 15 volts, so good for all classes and levels of racers.
Timing/ Lap scoring via a DS 300 Pro series lap counter and Stop & Go boxes, using DS hand controllers.

Design brief - This track folds against the back wall, so had to be flat. Mounted on a board 4.39 metres long, 1.80 metres wide, and lifted via an electric winch.
Track design - Fast , flowing, easy for all to use. No pinch points.
Theme - 1960's style racetrack. Goodwood themed buildings. All scenery other than fencing has to be easily removed and stored. Lane lengths - inside 32ft 11, outside 37ft 8. Big difference but mainly negated by the way the lanes drive. Red is hardest, the others very even.

Skill required - Much more than I have! Designed between myself and best mate Andy.
All the clever technical bits by Andy, who is by trade a Handy Man. He has all the tools, all the skill, and can do anything. If you want to to do a layout similar to this I can not stress the importance of having an Andy!!
Apparently other versions are available, like Dave, Colin, or similar Wrench
