Reverse siding

Posted 23-03-2018 at 01:11 PM by Mike1943
Hi

I want to turn engines round and return them to the same track pointing in the opposite direction, further down the line and do not have room for a turntable.

My idea is to leave the track, via a point in reverse and then go through a 'Y' point and into a siding. The other exit from the siding will flow back to the track via another point, thus achieving the turning of the engine. The carriages of my train will be left between the 2 sets of points which will mean...

February has been a good month. I've managed to get quite a few long term mini projects done. Which is good for the soul, as several significant tasks have been done as a result! The top is on and track laying can now begin again.

February Objectives Recap:
Reacquire a new, new Percy. Yeah... Still not happened.
Still watching, waiting for the right one.

Continue laying track on the lower level. The lower level is completed!
Continue the bridge...

It was a slow start to the year. However, relatively speaking, while not a lot on the top changed, quite a bit underneath advanced.

January Objectives Recap & Review:
Reacquire Percy. Been watching a few on the bay. Still not happy with the price mark ups.
Finish the foundations. Done!
Continue laying track on the lower level. 2 complete sidings laid down, 6 to go.
Continue the bridge build. This is once again, taking steps forward.

Welcoming in 2018

So as 2017 draws to a timely end, I thought it would be a fun idea to look back a year and see what I was doing on the layout this time last year.

I had thought that I had the baseboards partially in place and had at least started laying the incline foundations. Turns out I was several months ahead of myself there. I had barely started the incline corridor baseboard. It leaves me surprised at how much I have achieved in the year.
