I built a double Helix to run my eggliners and speeders. The Helix would be great for placing around a Christmas tree. This Helix may possibly be displayed at HAGRS with the WAGRS exhibit.



There is a YouTube video about the Eggliner and Helix here:

In response to an email question, The Helix is built with Aristo 4ft diameter and LGB 15000 curves. The trestle is the Aristo graduated trestle set.

New improved track supports replace the straight sections of track at the highest point in the Helix.

All sections of track and trestle have been numbered[ 1-24]/lettered[a-z]for ease of re-assembly at HAGRS.
