Oh dear, i hope the following doesn't ruin it!

Couple of changes to the plan:

1. The yard now only has an entrance from the running loop at ones end, this means the two are more separated from each other which allows trains on the loop to run whilst some shunting goes on in the yard.
Trains will have to run into the yard, uncouple the loco and then either the loc run round r a different loco take the wagons away.

2. The above means the old yard entrance at the top now forms a long run off in which full rakes van be pulled to pick out individual wagons to make up a new train for dispatch.

3. The bit of track on its own (is viaduct) which may replace the curve above it meaning that yard run off could run under into either a small yard or a couple of loco sheds.

First couple of pieces of the Kato Viaduct arrived, this stuff looks brilliant for modern image bridges and flyovers.

...Sorry to say this got shelved as experiments in automatic uncoupling using electro-magnets in n gauge had a less than positive outcome!
