Re: Shunting Goods Depot (8'6" x 2')

The layout is in an alcove so fitting a fiddle yard was not on the cards. But I thought I may use the front edge so have flipped the layout and added a cassette fiddle yard. The Head shunt isn't the longest but I can split incoming train in two if needed. Advice and ideas always welcome https://farm...

Re: Shunting Goods Depot (8'6" x 2')

can't help still wanting a fiddle yard, even if it is just one track (say, bottom left ) which goes off-scene. A single track could offer the possibility of several single track cassettes, (sitting on a shelf above or below the layout.) Chris I have been thinking about this layout and fiddle yard m...

Re: Shunting Goods Depot (8'6" x 2')

OK! perhaps I should have included a little more information. The area for the layout is at the end of a small room so walls on 3 sides, I have a 'N' gauge layout but even though not finished (but running) is wrong for me, I made it too wide and cant reach far side, its a double loop with siding, an...

Peco 75 Double slips and three way points

I am still in the design stage of my approximate 9' by 2' or 7' by 2'6" end to end shunting layout. Using Peco 75 track. As a space saver the double slip is better than 2 points head to head but with the more complex track and operation is derailment more of an issue or not? Same question for t...

Its 9' x 2' I have been looking at the Hornby elink. Are there any pitfalls to using this control with this layout? Or is there...
