For Steel coaster models, I use PVC for the track spine.
I am still trying to figure out what to use for the running rails, and having problems building the trains.

That is all the info I can proboly give.

It depends on the scale of what kind you are talking about and which kind of coaster...throw out some of your ideas, and I try to help you out. :)

I know where to get materials, but (surprise, surprise) I want to make a model of the Millennium Force. Not working, just a good looking model.

go to www.danimation.com look in the forum for info look in the model coaster sections, plenty of 3d animation guy and real model builders, they can give u links, i know some but not off the top of my head, so in my bookmarks. of course there is www.modelrollercoaster.com but his rides all look like arrow. Same with the guy who make magnum and blackwidow and icescream that inverted B&M(look like B&M) intamin would be hard. But nonworking will make it easier. Pvc is hard as hell for the rails so work with plastic rods of course, you most likly will have to go to a hardware store or even a hobby or plastic store. For all the crossties wood will work or plastic if you feel like cutting all day.

This is not a small scale model but an actual riding model this engineering student made in his backyard. Check it out. http://www.jeremyreid.com Hey, who knows, maybe he could help you out if you email him.
