Morton Stanley shuffling.

The back end of last week saw a drive up to Crawley and the time-honoured practice of shuffling stock and buildings around. Predictably there were a few adjustments to be made not least allowing a little more clearance in the run-round loop. there's not a lot of room to start with and the wide 7mm coaches need a bit of breathing space.By drawing the end points out to the bare minimum required to fit a loco in, enough slack was gained to slew the loop out a wee bit. This is sub 4' and is, whichever way you look at, it a quart into a pint pot.

  1. Yes, isn't it amazing how much bigger 0-16.5 is than 009? I know when I started building Duncton Yard I made the sidings too short, even though they need to be just long enough so only a limited number of vans could be parked on each one. Consequently I had to extend the baseboard slightly so it would all fit in. However, I'm very much looking forward to seeing Morton Stanley.
