A oval track set with siding !

The theme this time is "Siding".


When there are 2 sets of car connections on the single track, the siding system is necessary to operate the 2 car connections alternately.

Rokuhan provide R047 as the siding system.

When Track set A (R028) and Track set B (R047) are combined, a realistic oval track set with siding can be created.

Here is the actual image after R028 and R047 are combined.

Feeder (A008) shall be inserted to one of the straight tracks.

Then how you operate the 2 Turnouts ?  The 2 Turnouts need to function at a time.  For this purpose, Y-cable for Turnout (A005) is necessary.

RC02 + C002 in this case


This Y-cable enables the 2 Turnouts to function at a time when connected to C002 or RC03.

This is all you need to do to build such oval track set with siding.

For any further additional extensions, it depends on your idea !
