Hi 4MT, not sure what track pieces you have but can you move the short straight from the left hand side of the right most point to the other side to give yourself a longer head shunt? So the track looks something like this. R-

Could run an upper level on the windowsill. Actually, an upper level on the board... Umm. Have me in thinking mode!

Blimey why do people want him to make it bigger have extra levels etc. He wants it on the board as it is. Not bigger, higher, upside flaming down.

I thought the through line was a design feature simply adding in a bit more track to fill the scenery even if it wasn't actually running anything.
the new plan looks good.

Thanks Chris...the through line is more or less a parking space for (probably) the 4MT and a couple of carriages, like you say, just to fill up space.
