Today I had enough movable track cassettes to run a train in one side of the
Barn and out of the other side. First, a goods train was marshalled on the lawn
viaduct - the lowest point of the railway.
The train then climbed the 1 in 50 through the rose bed, into the north side of
the Barn, and across the marshalling table. The track included a cassette made
from a length of MDF with two pieces of aluminium L angle 16.5mm apart. The
other cassettes were Peco flexitrack mounted on thinner MDF to achieve the same
The train finally emerged from the south side of the Barn, and climbed the
remainder of the 1 I 50 bank to the summit.
The final picture shows the south portal of the Barn in context with the
greenhouse and water butt.
