On a recent trip to the USA I puchased an Atlas book of layout plans. I've decided to try and build one of them; I don't feel confident enough to make up my own layout quite yet.
Now, I can purchase Atlas track using mail order from the USA but I'd prefer to support someone this side of the Atlantic. The layout I want to build needs 9, 6 and 3 inch straights, 18 inch and 22 inch radius curves in full section and 18 inch third and half section curves a 25 degree crossing, a wye turnout #4 and #6 turnouts in both left and right plus some odds and ends down to 1 inch straights. I've looked at the Peco catalogue and they don't seem to have precisely what I want; ok I'll have to compromise but as far as I can see that means using flex track and cutting it as well as bending it. Not only that the geometry of the switches/turnouts/points doesn't match - more compromise.
So; questions:1) Is there anyone else I should be looking at as a manufacturer available (by post if necessary)? 2) Is there a piece of layout planning software that works well with Peco track. The Atlas freeware is simple (for a simple layout). 3) Model Jounction in Slough stock some Atlas track, but not everything I want - is there an Atlas track stockist in the UK? Macs don't stock it and I can't get hold of Canvey today.
