What exactly is a LAGGIES Helix?


A Helix is a spiral, on which a train can run from one level to another higher or lower one - meaning the train runs upwards or downwards on the Helix. The Helix has a consistent incline so that the train can even overcome big differences in height.


When do I need a Helix?


The possible applications many-fold and diverse. Here are some examples:


Getting to a higher or lower level


Reaching a station under the installation


Connect to installations of different heights


How is it ensured that the train don't go of the rails on the Helix?


The Helix's outer incline is roughly 3 mm higher than the inner incline. This makes the train run a lot more stable and securely on the Helix and it reduces the friction.


Which variations of LAGGIES Helix are there?


There is Helix for the H0 and the N model railway scale - exactly modelled to met the individual railway scales' requirements. All Helix can be set up to be used clock wise as well as counter clock wise.


How can I overcome even bigger height differences with the Helix?


Every Helix needs a so-called Basic Helix. This Basic Helix includes the entrance and the exit of the Helix. On each of this Basic Helix additional Helix can be added, until the desired height is reached.


What does a LAGGIES Helix Kits include?


A kit contains carefully crafted track segments made from 4 mm high plywood as well as compatible stands and holders.
