The FarrOut Collection

The Farrout Raceway is a 12 ft by 10 ft landscaped Scalextric Classic 55 ft long 4-Lane using a MRC variable (0-18v) train transformer for each lane. That is mainly so I can vary the power for my kids to play together with their friends.

Buildings are a mixture of mainly vintage Scalextric, Bauer cardboard buildings, some newer Carrera Garages (tucked under the bridge), Mike's Scenic Supplies, Gakworld,carrera4fun.de paper vending machines/umbrellas, workbenches, tool chests and a SCX Rally tent. The 150 people are a mix of vintage Scalextric, MRRC, current Carrera and SCX, a couple of old Tamiya army men and the Pit Babes from Slot.it. Over 350 trees have been planted so far!! Race control and timing is through a pair of DS-Slot Stop'n'Go and DS-300 boxes linked to a PC-LapCounter software.
