Ready Made Helix For SaleNow that we're moving and the layout is being disassembled, this helix will no longer be required and is for sale.
Built to accommodate a 335mm change in height it has three loops of 750mm inner and 800mm outer radius giving a grade of about 2.5%. Outside diameter 1680mm, difference in rail levels 102mm and vertical clearance is 77mm although this could be increased easily.
Uses Peco code 100 flextrack and the lower two layers are lit with LED strips.
Sits on a custom made collapsable stand with castors to suit shelf heights of 1055mm and 1390mm above floor level.
Wired to provide six separate sections so that if you wanted to use train detection you could perhaps use that.
Going for $200 which is less than the cost of the materials to build it. Can be viewed or picked near Penrith NSW or if you need more details or photos please let me know.
