Hi folks, I am a newbie to this group and have a question,
Let me set the stage first, I have 027 track in the original 27 inch radius on my old Marx layout. The board is 4'X8' and the outer edge to outer edge measurement is 45 inches giving me 1.5 inches clearance to my safety sideboards, the same is true at the ends of the table. The marx engines clear with very little margin to spare. I borrowed a neighbors GP30 (may have been a 35) 4 axel Lionel diesel and it requires 1.75 inches of clearance toward the outside through the curve which at the moment I dont have.
Are there any lionel diesels or switchers available with smoke and proto type sound that will run on my current layout? I can probably move the wooden safety rails around the edge of the table out a quarter inch or so but I am looking at all options.
Thank you for any help. See you in York this weekend?
