A couple of days off work..a few spare bits of wood, foamcore and track..Actually, I had prepared this little shelf beforehand, with the intention of finding a substitute for Middle Street which used to sit on my computer shelf. After much umming and ahing, measuring and doodling, I settled on this plan.
Basically it's a little shunty plank for OO. There is no puzzle as such, movements are generated using a simple grid and a twenty sided dice. I use five wagons and four 'spots' to place them, rolling for each move generates enough interest for a little gentle shunting of an evening (as you do!)
The plan,as you can see, is definitely on the micro side of things..
The 'fiddle is a Peco loco lift which extends off the side (a handy steal for another few centimetres..)
Which can be hidden by this portable 'screen' but it interferes with things a little..
The headshunt is limited to a loco and two wagons..
More scenics to go..(mainly some kind of concrete), but no backscene is intended as this is supposed to be really easy to store!
