    Ok ... sooo I've got an idea for a new layout ... as the name suggests its gonna have trams!
    • It will be in the same size case as my 'Just in Case' layout 35cm x 50cm.
    • The track plan will be very similar, using Kato unitrack (as I know this works and I've already got the curves)
    • I can use my existing controller and point levers (I won't need uncouplers)
    • I will be using 4 inexpensive Kato Pocketline trams (of which I already have one
    • The structure will be simple being just platforms/canopies and ticket offices
    The pla ...? ... operation value will include timetables for each tram including platform number and order of departer/arrival
    At the front there will be a short tunnel as if the trams are arriving or leaving

    That's the theory ... and ... (quick look behind for the other 5/8ths) ... because I'm using items similar to what I've already got she'll think I'm pla ... working on the shunting layout 'Just in Case' ... cunning eh?

    Now ... this could be my next project ... each siding/spur? is long enough to hold a kato tram (14cm) ... the bottom tunnel thingy gives the impression of trams leaving/arriving in sequences ...
