Summary: 
7:57 - Multideck model railroad layout design issues (2005)
Description: 

One way to get more model train layout is to multideck it. But multideck design can be tricky: how much separation between decks is best? How wide should the decks be and allow seeing all the lower deck? Joe Fugate tackles the tough multideck questions, helping your multideck model railroad design be the best it can be.

Hi Joe, I do understand the Helix problem in model railroading. But you are telling that a Helix is not prototypical....there are many places in the world were there are a sort of Helix:

tehachapi loop USA / Gotthard route (Switzerland) has 7 loops / 5 loops on the Albula/Bernina rail (Switzerland) and there are plenty more.

Greetings from The Netherland, no Helix found here ;-(

Strictly speaking, one climbing loop up and over is not a helix, it's a spiral loop.

Helix definition:

An object having a three-dimensional shape like that of a wire wound uniformly in a single layer around a cylinder or cone, as in a corkscrew or spiral staircase.
