Re: LUMSDONIA

Same to you timberwolf.

Their points are ready powered and work well, although the #4 points need care as to siting, don't put them in immediately after a curve a 64, or 62mm* straight is the minimum needed to ensure good running. They make a lot of different radii, double tracks points including a one...

The reason* our technical guys gave was that, being so flat there was nowhere high** enough to mount a mast, thus limit...
