The above photo shows Gordon Beating out Earnhardt at the finish line for the caution flag with the teams of pit crew guys in the pit areas to the right. A very realistic crash was created in turn 4(photo below) using fine cotton and acrylic paint for the smoke effect. Below shows Gordon & Earnhardt coming to the line underneath the walkbridge with the pits in the distance to the right. As an added touch, we went to a recording studio and recorded a play by play audio tape of all the events that are taking place around the track. Message: Hi allI have sort of committed myself to a small N scale project for my son after a friend of mine gave him some N scale equipment.
Message: If you use Flex track most any kind of matching (turnouts same brand as flex track) turnouts would work. Message: Well it sounds like your son can handle the Nscale stuff and has already decided he likes it. Message: Bruce,For a starter layout and for more of your 8 year olds involvement in the building yet a high degree of after build satidfaction you might consider trying to adapt the layout to Kato Unitrack. Message: Jon he needs to beware of the Atlas code 55 as most older and all MT stuff won't run on it unless you convert to low profile wheels (which is a major pain on locos).
Message: I have read that micro-trains wheel sets are easy to sand down by removing them from the train car and pushing them at an angle across fine sandpaper. Message: Well I am just enthusiastic about N scale and like to encourage people towards reasonable prototype realism.

I have fond memories of having a road set that I used to play with using my Matchbox cars and I can't for the life of me find out now what it was, or who it was made by. It was a modular system so you could build whatever road layout you wanted, but it was unique in that it actually consisted of the pavements - not the road. It was all very realistic - the edges were moulded to look like kerb stones and there were road signs with square pegs that slotted into square holes.


Can't remember that but remember the awesome Matchbox one they did around the same time - the roads where plastic sections, a bit like guttering, that clipped together with flat connections, about an inch squared.
Didn't they do a track like Scalextric, but it had a continuous spring in the slot that was driven by a motor, and you had little adapters to attach your cars? For some reason I remember jumping the cars over a sleeping border terrier but that would mean you didn't need to join the circuit and that doesn't seem quite right?????
I found out in my 30s that an uncle developed toys and I used to get prototypes and didn't realize it and wish I still had them.
I remember once being given a load of plastic wiring conduit left behind when a large extension was built on the University. Matchbox Motorway was a little like Scalextric but you were able to use your own Matchbox sized toy cars. I remember the springs wore out because you could buy spares, and when you packed it away it would end in a huge tangle. Was there another version of the Matchbox spring thing that had 'm-way' in the name (ie motorway) ?
A few years ago we had a summer street party, I was in charge of sorting a scalextric track - so I now have a few big boxes of the stuff in one of the bedrooms ! I have a question for DaveyBoyWonder: I'm looking for the old Matchbox road system that you mentioned above, with the plastic sections that fit together with little tabs. Anyone ever have one of these, spent many hours with it, you added a magnet to any matchbox car and it would work on it. Contact the seller- opens in a new window or tab and request a shipping method to your location. Putty was then applied many times over as the track was sanded literally over 100 times to get it as smooth as possible.
Existing miniature diecast NASCAR models were bent up for added realism and tire rubber and crash marks put into the track and walls where the impacts and skid marks were. I have decided on this plan as it has everything he wants - bridges, tunnel, water etc:Now the issue I have is that this plan was developed back in the 60's to use Atlas Snap Track style turnouts and I have no idea if the same sort of thing is available today. The track was originally designed for HO scale and had a table underneath indicating the square sizes in various scales.
Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. I had a few bits of it, and remember excitedly foaming over the catalogue which features car washes, petrol stations etc. Then you got corners, junctions and all kinds of garages and multi storey car parks and stuff. The one I had had a spring that ran the length of the track and a cog used to drive the spring. I had a James Bond suitcase with fold up rifle pistol and silencer and working camera all could be used from the case or on their own. My mother's ex was a lecturer there and had seen it all in the skip and noticed how it was just the perfect size for matchbox cars.
You slotted the track together, but before putting the final piece in, you had to push two really long springs through the length of the track and join it up to complete a loop - one spring for each lane.
You had to stick little pegs onto the bottom of the cars so they could spike between the coils of the springs. The lights failed on the 911 so I wrote a nice letter to Matchbox and they sent me five plug-in replacements.
You could add hills for making bridges, curves, and it even came with little plastic street lights.


If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. See the photos below for views and read about the many features that were incorporated. The paint was specially mixed with particles in it to create a 3 dimensional appearence when viewed.
So when looking at the model, the audio brings your attention to the various things going on around the track for added interest.
If I use modern standard turnouts then the plan won't actually fit.As for handlaying N scale turnouts - what is the size of PC board to use. However most steam locos in N scale won't perform well (if at all) on #4 switches so plan on a all diesel stable.
I also was given a custom made double holster with pistols, but then we played with the stuff until it died.
It was pretty noisy when switched on though - because of the friction of the springs in the grooves. As has been said, you had to stick a little plastic pin to the underside of the car, then cut a bit off so it was the correct length from the wheels.
Like Jon mentioned depending on the age of your son you might be better going with a larger scale.
I might use the TT setting which was between N & HO although I didn't want to go too big in the layout as he has limited room in his bedroom. The one good thing was you could put as many cars on as you had pins, so you could have massive traffic jams going round. The crowd in the stands are even on they're feet for the 2 car accident going into turn 4 with realistic smoked tires and damaged race cars while Jeff Gordon & Dale Earnhardt Race to the line. The concrete walls were made of rubber with added talcom powder for a very realistic dust effect. A simple DCC system would also make the layout more fun for someone just starting as the firest thing he will want to do is to run about 8 locos at the same time. The fencing was made of fine material netting and straight pins were used and inserted into the walls as main supports. I may look into something else that I can fit into 2x4 or smaller that has operational capability. Even many of the cars themselves needed to be custom painted to match that of the real drivers of the day, namely the Dale Earnhardt model along with his hauler which was completely custom made.
My boy is 8 years old in May and fully understands what trains are about and how delicate they are. The little monster is almost better then I am at parking boxcars infront of coke ovens on my HO layout using DCC. He does not want a "boring round-de-round" (his words) but wants to be able to deliver cars to various industries.
When I brought home the N scale stuff he was so wrapped and was very proud of the fact that he could get them on the rails when Dad couldn't.
