 Hi All    I have been faffing around with an Inglenook puzzle, as everyone knows, due to lack of space. But, it occurs to me that although it is a good puzzle, I don’t know where the idea would fit in with a real Railway, as it shares the mainline as part of the game. Meaning that no other trains could run during passenger operations. If it was a sidings off the mainline it would make more sense. Best wishes Kevin            PS I must have made a typo with regards to “ Instead “

Kevin it does not really matter does it if its your layout. If you want to play the game you dont run any mainline trains at the time of playing it.

Kevin, those type of layouts are not designed based on real railways but for shunting puzzles

Hi Kevin,

There are plenty of real examples of ingenious inglenook ladders going into a main line. And that involved shunting on the main. Check the web for track plans. The basis was Kilham sidings on the Alnwick and Cornhill Railway. Branchline shunting usually involved use of the main track. Technically slip coach repositioning was shunting. Much less reality for time savers, which have received considerable criticism over the years. 

Do what works for you.

Nigel

Hi Ron. Thank you. The Wymann Puzzle is the one that I based my puzzle on. If I had seen the John Allen Puzzle first, then I would have probably chosen that one. But as the general consensus is “ it is your game you make the choice “ . I will stick with what I know. Best wishes Kevin

Hi Brian. Thank you. The puzzle is separate from anything, even if I was to extend my “Inglenook Junction “ it is still on another line. Best wishes Kevin

Hi Nigel. Thank you for your reply. I found an incomplete reference for that line on another forum, now that I know exactly what I am looking for I will look again. I have read about “ Slip Coach Working “ but some ideas seemed unlikely ie slipping from a moving train.  Best wishes Kevin

Hi Kevin

Have a search around the Interweb for "Inkerman Street"

Its 7mm but covers a passenger station and a few sidings for shunting set into a scenic environment.

You don't have to copy it but its an intersting idea to start with.

Barry

Merton Street Station, Banbury. Two nice Inglenook-style sidings either side of the station, one with a head shunt. One side goods, the other side  cattle (20 pens, largest cattle market in Europe at one time). The goods side would have had to shunt on the main by the look of the OS map. 

Disused-stations.org 

A veritable treasure trove of ingenious inglenooks large and small. Real world ones had more tracks than the puzzle. Almost fractal.

Nigel
