In the final part of his three-part garden railway series, MIKE WILD explains how he overcame a complex return loop situation while discovering even greater flexibility could be introduced with a new piece of trackwork and Digital Command Control electronics.
Above: D1061 Western Envoy rumbles across the point work at the junction as a Class 128 parcels railcar heads in the opposite direction. The double slip is controlled by a Hex Frog Juicer for maximum operational value from this junction.
DEVELOPING track plans that are interesting to operate is great fun, but every now and then I stumble across a design which creates a new electrical headache. The return loops of my garden railway are just one of those.
