The N gage is housed in a cabinet the idea would be great for an office or small apartment

John’s cabinet railroad reminds me of Steve’s layout – he built around his sofa in his living room.
“It’s too cold to do much with my South Wales layout in the garage, even tho it’s insulated and heated.
I’m actually in the process of changing the back scene to give it a makeover, but have not operated it since before Christmas.
I have re- vamped the shunting puzzle I built 18mths ago, it’s been standing on edge for over a year. I bought a DCC diesel to use on it and created a factory back scene. I’ve also put some ground cover to make it more realistic and I can operate it at my desk indoors, in the warm.
The points are operated by brass rods above the baseboard but hidden under a plinth with a Nissan hut on top. A second hut hides the DCC control box. The 3 uncouplers are operated by coffee stirrers which are pivoted to push the ramps up.
I’ve had great fun using it and it’s good for keeping my old brain ticking
The DCC sound makes it more interesting too.
Hope you like it

A huge thanks to John and Alan. Alan got me thinking, I’ve only ever published two shunting puzzles, this one and Cameron’s.
That’s all this time folks. Please do keep ’em coming.
And whether it’s shunting or scenery that’s your thing, don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here.
