The track is Scaley analogue.
The table is 3.5m by 1.5m.
The space is limited.
The plan is
The elevation variation is 300mm all up.
The proposed scenery is definite Australian countryside. Inspired by my local area, redgum savana, grassland and rock. It's intended as a Targa style track.
I know the table is quite wide, but marshalling shouldn't be too bad a problem even though it's up against a wall. The danger spots can all be reached without too much of an issue. Hardest part will be landscaping over the area. I tried sketching the plan for the scenery, but I'll have to put more time in it for it to make sense to the outside world.
Back straight (base of image) will be hightest point. Switch back setup, from there. The three straights are all at different levels, with the angled one being on the base level. From there it climbs around the loop up to the highest point. The only part I'm not happy with is the area marked in grey, but I feel I have to leave this in as it's the main contribution to design from my partner (well other than smart ass remarks about blue gum plantations for scenery).
I've tested this layout on the floor for about 6 weeks and it's a fun challenge. It's difficult to resist the temptation to push too hard on the back straight. I figure this track could eventually convert to digital.
So. That's the plan. The table has been installed and will fold against the wall along the edge with the straight. The journey has commenced.
