    That was me again! My next layout, based on CJ Freezer’s Minories. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minories_(model_railway)

    Switching Puzzles

    I built a layout for a show. 8 baseplates by 3, 5 switches. I had plenty of fun shuffling cars about at home. In a show situation I was way too busy talking to gawkers and doing other things. The layout had a loop though soo there was always a train running, and had a passing loop so could swap trains too.

    Nerwen growled. What’s the point of being a healer if no one needs healing? She strikes at the first available target.

    Percy loves PoweredUp!

    The saddle tank design is heavily inspired by Canvas Rail’s work, https://flic.kr/p/VhgCUd Previously the loco was a bit finicky with getting the signal into the cabin, now I can drive it with one hand (and the remote) behind my back.

    Percy loves PoweredUp!

    I’ve had a small green saddle tank engine built for a while now. Despite his smiley face, the driver is sad, he can’t stand neatly in the cab of the engine. But, PoweredUp! Now he can. Steam on!

    Help needed: modified switch geometry for layout

    Thanks! Exactly what I needed.

    Help needed: modified switch geometry for layout

    Yes, that’s the parts library Michael Gale has created that one would use with bluebrick to do the planning. Ive done plenty of sketches and back of envelope calculations. But I’m not certain they’re right or that I’ve found the most efficient solution.
  8. I am beginning work on a layout inspired by Cyril Freezer's minories. I don't have a laptop or desk machine to run bluebrick and fiddle around with geometries. I expect I'll be using modified PF points (stubby and 1/8circle). But I don't know what else I'll need in terms of half straights etc, to line up with the stud grid. Could a helpful person spend a couple of minutes on bluebrick and sketch up the approach point work? I'd be very grateful, thanks!

    Nerwen pitches the blue gem through the air across the rolling deck, between the milling heroes, landing it unerringly in Toralds hand. Nerwen hands Sapphire to Torald.

    Nerwen digs a sapphire out of her satchel. Who needs this?

    Unable to say how she had missed the burly figure of Lord Lawrence Boomingham except for the crowd, Nerwen breaks into a grin. Catching him in a brief hug, she stands by the wheel and raises her voice. You heard Boomingham. Let's get underway. If you know your starboard from your port, step to the rigging. If you've got a ranged weapon, find a clear patch of deck, otherwise, get to one of the cannons and begin readying it! Especially you ambassador, make yourself useful for once.

    Arthur! Munk! This quite a reunion! speakng to Atramor first, she replies, I heard loud snores behind one of the hold doors, so yes, there's at least that. I don't know who it is, but if it's one of Illidra's crew, they may know where she is.

    Lightkiller. Indeed it has. I don’t really know any of those names, but if you and the others here seek to stop it, then I shall stand with you. Nerwen looks across the bay. Is the party in favour of sneaking across, fighting their way across or attempting some deception that avoids immediate conflict?

    Nerwen gasped Executions? Who? she looked around at the gathering heroes, The Thief is set up so it can be sailed by two or three. But it’s not well armed. More a smuggling ship than a warship. As for the thief himself, I have not seen him in a long time. Nerwen’s manner visably cools at the mention of Guts Holla.

    Nerwen looked up sheepishly. Atramor! Master Hoke! er, no I returned to Eubric and given the mess it’s in, planned to take the Wind Thief and leave, but it’s missing some gear. You caught me ‘borrowing’ some supplies. What are you doing here?
