Building a Model Railway – Helixes

We had a gentleman contact us this week asking how to go about making a helix. Helix’s are popular over the pond in the USA with railway/railroad modellers, used for getting trains up/down to a higher or lower level without the need to build really long inclines. The helix is a compact way of incorporating an incline into a model railway which has multiple levels. In this Next video, DJ Trains takes a look at a Helix & installs one into his layout. Certainly an impressive feature anyway here’s the video.
