Barcoola mkiv

Hi All

Sometimes we all have moments of clarity, for me it usually 3am...
Awake I penned this version of Barcoola, using the fiddle yard for Port Augusta - Whyalla.

There is not much shunting operations on this version of Barcoola, it more an effort to get closer to the original inspiration, but also able to fit into the train room, and then simplified construction.
If this works then Port Augusta - Whaylla should be an easy follow.

This does not mean that Alice Springs is no longer? Nup.... in-fact the reverse, so close to completion.

in other news, we have come up with an era for the ultra modern version of Barcoola, more on that later.

Enjoy the results of my insomnia.
