I am currently planning my next layout for a two-and-a-half day lego event in my local community house.
Everybody in the coop has been invited to join filling the city of my layout (I expect mostly 7-12 year olds to come).
My idea is Friday to set up a big layout with 12v stuff and Saturday-Sunday having others to participate.
I have tried something similar before, but then I did not announce the event and nearly nobody contributed.
Please see the video created by my video enthusiast neighbour.
My layout will be inspired by ozaceks LEGO 12V Train Dream Layout.
I have analysed this layout and created his design in TrackDesigner (please ignore 2 small gaps):
Please see how elegantly the layout exists of 3 electronically independent loops each of which uses it own transformer.
Trains can run undisturbed on their loop and will only change loop when switches are not straight (easier to control).
Furthermore, I really like how ozacek slightly rotated some of the tracks. Usually 12v layout are boringly quadrangular.
Finally, to cap it all, he has used a nice bridge (tracks with red support) - I simply love bridges!
I do not know what I can achieve in 2-and-a-half days, but I am looking forward to the event and will post some pictures here.
All ideas/suggestions are very welcome.
