14ft X 14ft square track?
« on: May 04, 2024, 10:41:12 am »
Hi, another new guy here...  Large track question.

I plan to install a train shelf that goes around the perimeter of the ceiling of a room.  14ft x 14ft.

HO scale with the smallest minimum curve of 18-20in would make creating the shelf the easiest.

I have zero train knowledge.  I do know how to measure and calculate Volts, Amps, Ohms, Watts, and how to use a multi-meter. 

Will a normal HO train set supply enough power for a loop this big?  Or do I need moor...stuff?


Thank you train Gods!  (I have much to learn)

Hello and Welcome to the Forum!
The "Lionel Train Workshop" section of the Forum should be able
to supply you with answers to your questions.
Also, you can check the HO sub- forum for information on your scale.
Again, Welcome!

happy rails...

Okay thanks.  It's a large track.  I thought layout would be appropriate.  I will try over there.
