Got two boxes of track today,24 each the straights are 30 inch long the curves are 096.
This is the layout I have planned probably on posts with boards on top.
Will be a pretty simple layout but I want it so I can remove and move if need be.

Thanks John, building the straight section will be easy but those corners will be tricky.

I`ve never heard the name but can agree it resembles a dog bone, then it could resemble a lot of things.
