  • The fiddle yard for Grove Ferry Junction

    Robin Fielding

    Issue 199 (2010)



    It has become something of a tradition for fiddle yards on S Scale layouts to be hidden. This does, however, restrict the kind of system that can be used, as often the buildings screening the front can get in the way of the moving tracks. However, the approach that Robin Fielding is describing here allows the tracks to slide back and forth, and then at the end of an operating session the whole cassette can be pulled forward and turned around, ready to start again. A rather clever idea, me thinks!

  • Traversing on the brink

    Bev Lowery, Dave Lowery

    Issue 9 (1986)


    The run-round loop, vital to the operation of most termini, invariably occupies much of the available space. However, the 'Bevleys' traverser provides a means of combining much of the run-round loop with off-stage storage, thus saving much valuable space and offering a whole range of possibilities for compressing lengthy track layouts. Bev Lowery explains how she and her husband Dave solved their run-round problem and made operating conditions a little easier on their superb 4mm layout.
