A mention came up recently of the Rev. Awdry's original 6 x 4 plan for Farquhar Mk1 which I think was this.
Seeing as it might be fun I had a try, using this as a basis, to come up with a variation using Anyral
This has Peco points for a live frog option, but needs R1 curves in places.
I added a second, through, station to add capacity, and re-worked the fiddle yard, making it more bidirectional.
This was the main point I had in mind:
I then tried the effect of adding a foot to length and width, but transferring all the operating and access space requirements to inside the layout.
The track curves come up to R3 as a minimum as a major improvement, and all the goods and storage sidings are eased appreciably.
There is a large enough section of single plain track for a simple flap or lift-out bridge.
That the overall space required may actually be less with the larger layout i've tried to show here:
This would be for, Thomas, Percy, Toby, Maisie and Daisy.
Oliver with autocoach Isobel could visit on the 7 x 5 version
Any questions about designing a model railway layout or problems with track work.
