For the last few weeks I have been putting together a Modular LEGO Train Layout. Each Module is based on a 900mm X 1200 X 6mm MDF board mounted to a 70mm X 20mm Timber Frame. The Module use a series of Dowls and Holes to join the Modules together. This arrangement allow for easy storage and transportation to LEGO Shows and Displays.

Railway Points Modifications

This article aims to show one how too create custom 90° LEGO Train Points I made for my LEGO Railway layout. The reason for creating these custom 90° LEGO Train Points, is that the resultant 90° turn is half the width, when compared with a regular LEGO 90° Point arrangement. And hence you save on valuable Track Layout real-estate. The out of the box set-up requires 4-pieces of track instead of 3-pieces to create a 90° turn. Also by using these custom 90° LEGO Train Points, you end up with many more new layout options as a bonus.
