The drawing above ^^^ was done for a slotcar 'hillclimb' track.

Size of the trackplan is 6' x 2.5'
The numbers are elevations in Inches.

It took some time to get what I think is the 'optimum' configuration of looping.
The other concerns were, minimal tunnels & track being as visible as possible.

This design has inspired me to try some slightly simplified & smaller 4' x 2' versions for trains.
More soon ...

On the left are what look like switches...
...and they are !
Slotcar switches.

The idea was to have 2 extension pieces, the size of dinner-plates for the cars to turn on top & bottom.
The polarity of the main track can be reversed by a track-mounted switch, as the car is driving the loop.
The switch swops over a latching-relay, changing the main-track polarity.
