SITE PLANNING

When planning the complete site and track routing, several important factors should be considered. High visibility to heavy traffic is a strong factor to encourage ridership. Route the train along the course of scenic features in the area. Lakes, streams, wooded areas are ideal setting for the ride.

We provide automatic and manual switch tracks and turnouts. Turnouts provide a siding area for coaches, no need to pull all your coaches if they are not needed for the slower ridership times of day. Switch tracks are also used for dog bone layouts and train storage area.

We provide complete survey service for new track installations. It is very important to have proper radius and grade for the track layout. By increasing the radius of the turns will minimize wheel wear. Also, by keeping the grade of the rail to a minimum, the locomotive can pull more coaches leading to increased ridership.
