The fixed triple curves look look good: Peco Setrack or someone else's?
And the big one : what are you hoping trains will do, that the fiddle yard will have to have facilities for.
As originally shown there were to be up to six trains in each direction taking turns to circle.
A more complicated fiddle yard will almost certainly put the operator at the back, there being a lot more to keep an eye on.
You're probably right on the L-H points
They are Peco setrack at the bottom but flexicurve at the top....well spotted
What am I hoping the trains will do???? What CAN I do??!! I think I have stated elsewhere I've never had trains before.....all this is totally new to me and I'm gonna take it one step at a time. Looking at the main plan the station coal-yard is mainly one way in and out the same way apart from the through 'third' line. I thought if I got it built in the main part then the running order could be thought of later (maybe I'm wrong on this?). My Idea for a turntable was to maybe turn an engine so it could run both directions but if that makes things really complicated then I'll ditch the idea. If there are eventually to be six trains each way then I suppose a turntable isn't needed!!
Once again I bow to your knowledge of these things Chris
