N Scale Kato Unitrack Additions

Hi RMP!

Is it possible to add two new pieces to the track Library? See attached photo, the smaller one is 20-071 and the larger piece is 20-070. I've attached a photo for you. They are both much smaller than the 62mm 1/4 length srtaight piece and are very useful on complex layouts.

Best regards

Rob

Re: OsO Valley

If you already have RailModeller Pro, I've made my layout available to download on the community layts section of RMP under N scale. Originally, the top deck was going to be Peco track but I've had such good results with the Kato track after messing around with it for the last few years that I redes...

Re: Updating Community Layouts [Moved]

Thanks Guys!

I've just updated the OsO Valley using this method.

Love the improvements your making all the time to RM Pro. Hope to get back to work with my layout soon. Still stuck on the boat in Thailand but will get going again when I return home from the Boat in May.

Updating Community Layouts [Moved]

Hi I shared my OsO Valley Double Deck layout, I have since made changes so it all flows better and redesigned the top deck using 98% Kato track (it's worked very well so far on the lower deck) rather than Peco. I've tried to update the layout on the community pages but it doesn't seem to let me. I t...

Re: OsO Valley

Hello again Just came accross photo's I took when I was experimenting with painting the Kato Uni Track. Essentially, I removed the entire section of furthest away part of the layout, which wasn't going to be easy to reach, kept it in two halves and then just sprayed it on a drop sheet in the garage....

Re: OsO Valley

Hello again Thank you very much Jan for adding my You Tube link! It's appreciated and nice to get a lot more viewings on my channel. Keeps me motivated. A few more photo's today. I decided to extend the double tracks under the plywood so the turnout happens before entering the tunnel. That way I hav...

Re: OsO Valley

Lower deck DCC Bus line installed as are the drop feeders. Used 4mm cable for the bus line and the default Kato track feeder cables (24-818). So far have used over 30 and have another 20 to install on the helix and upper yard area. First test run everything worked perfectly, no short circuits and no...

Re: OsO Valley

Hello again It's been a while since I posted anything but have made progress since the last time. Updated I'll post a few photo's shortly but I've also got a you tube channel for the build. Don't expect great production quality as it's all shot from my iPhone and I don't edit the video. Average time...

Re: OsO Valley

99.9% done with benchwork.

Electrics and track laying next. Doubt I'll have time now for it until September but you never know.

Re: OsO Valley

Have been able to put in almost a full week, More work on the top deck, stringers and even more or less finished the helix roadbed. More photo's for you. I tested a four axle GP7 and my new GS4 on the initial climb to make sure the incline and curves aren't too much. I'll do a full test tomorrow wit...

Re: OsO Valley

Upper deck construction underway. I decided to go out on a limb (again) and use 9mm plywood (less than half the price of the 15mm of the lower deck and half the weight) along with the recycled 27Sq mm stringers. First section worked out well so I'll continue. Posted more photo's for you. I'll try no...

Re: OsO Valley

Couple more photo's of the back side with track and more foam. Since the photo was taken, I've removed the track and will start building the tope deck this week having finally obtained more plywood.

Re: OsO Valley

Thank you drbnc! I figure if I'm going to do it then might as well go large within the available space.
