I had hoped that the fiddleyard would take four coach trains with a tender loco but, with wishing to make it easier to operate the selectors it was not possible.
I always stick to the size of baseboard decided upon- a moments hotheadedness can lead to years of regret- so I follow the original plan on size.
I am pleased that all the locos with pony trucks and the coach bogies all pass over the rail breaks without problem- running them at full controller speed usually shows up any unevenness- not recommended too often though!
Wagons seem to cross OK- both being pushed as well as pulled- the former won't happen often but it is worth checking.
The L section screwed to the edges seems to keep the whole lot square so was worthwhile doing.
By the way 30,000 hits was passed the other night- thanks to all those taking the trouble to view- let me know if there is anything in particular that I could help with.
