Hi all I know this seems like a stupid question but I haven't built a model train since I was in my 20s and that's a long long time ago and I can't remember did the kits come with track to display the train on or do I have to buy some, also in a group build can I have 2 models in the same build as I have an idea to setup a train crash

There is no track in Dapol kits. Has to be bought separately.

Dapol don't do track. Any standard OO track will do. I use Peco.

Peco - is the choice if you want a layout - but the cheaper Hornby track is fine - if it is just for display.

Look for Hornby R600 'straight' for small locos - like the J94 Austerity and the longer R601 piece for the larger tender locos like Evening Star.

There are even smaller track pieces too - for the Pug saddle tank !

or buy 1 length of peco flexi track , and have it to cut to length for a few builds to keep costs down and give the option of laying straight curved or rickety track depending on desires ,, for instance a shunting loco is more likeley to be in a yard with rickety track than on a main line with bolt straight track
