What if the branch ran on to the spur, that would bring it closer to the main line and perhaps allow for a set of points ? ........ just a thought
Hi Chaps, Looking for some input on where to position a nice Bachmann Hampton Hill Signal box that I acquired and which I think will complement the depot corner of the layout..........I cannot quite make up my mind on what would be the most prototypical area for this to be positioned and have taken ...
