Alice Springs moves closer to organised ops sessions, I have been busy testing various scenarios,
Ops so far have proved that we can operate the yard while keeping the mainline and the arrival departure road clear, most of the time.
I wanted to store as much of the rolling stock at a convenient height, so I figured that I could make two sets of draws from the one big one, (thanks to Michael for the idea). I made new ends, sides and shelves, and added heavy duty rollers.
Rebuilding basically took a day.
I am hoping to use the shelves to store the "exhibition" transit boxes and the useless Auscision storage boxes. eventually I would also like to have my rail library stored under the layout like this.
This would mean that I would be able to free up another spare bedroom. Which would be an advantage for for long into the night and "too many bourbon" operating sessions. Keep the chicks and the blokes happy.
