PECO manufacture for a range of gauges including Z gauge, N gauge, OO gauge, O gauge, Gauge 1, SM32 and Gauge 45.

When considering your first layout here are some thoughts to help you:

  • Manufacturers will quote the minimum radius suitable for their models. This refers to the radius of curves in your model railway.
  • Locomotives with only 4 wheels will happily go round tighter curves than engines with 6 or more wheels.
  • PECO and Hornby both refer to curves and points being Short (1st Radius), Medium (2nd Radius) and Large (3rd Radius)
  • Tight curves and especially tight S Curves (opposing curves with no straight between them) can give problems with long carriages or locos.
  • Never lay track directly onto sandy or fluffy surfaces as debris will enter the locomotives workings and destroy them.
  • Your baseboard or track base should be as firm as possible to stop track flexing.
  • Laying the track onto strips of cork will reduce the drumming noise of trains running on the baseboard.
  • Good quality nickel silver rails such as those used by PECO will give better conductivity than steel rails.
  • Track should be fixed to the board using tack pins. Start with the points (or turnouts) to set the track spacings and work from there.
  • Keeping rails clean using methylated spirits or isopropyl alcohol will keep trains running properly.
  • If you are skilled with a soldering iron then soldered connections to track will always be better than push fit connectors
