  Hi Kevin,

There are lies, more lies, and then there are statistics. Expert opinion is usually...not. Run a mile when you get expert opinion on matters statistical. When you have controlled every variable and it still doesn't work, the first person to have a look at it will point out the obvious error. Or it will work. Sometimes.

On any point you will need some space immediately after the exit to allow for clearances. It can be quite a lot.

Nigel

Hi Ron.  Thank you.  Not yet, but, that is what I had assumed all the way along! There is so much going on at the time of writing , I don’t know whether I am on standing on my head or feet. I purchased a razor saw, which I cannot find,and I have been on a mission in the garden, I have varnished the baseboard , as soon as I either find the razor saw or get a new one I can get on with cutting the gap, between the Inglenook and the fiddleyard then test the points and track etc etc. You know what I mean, not forgetting several mugs of tea.  Best wishes Kevin

Hi Nigel      Thank you.  Your comment. “When you have controlled every variable and it still dosen’t work”, sounds like something penned by Conan Doyle . This is serious stuff, of course , I will lay the track, and test it for derailments, paying particular attention to the track nearest to the edge, before I fix it down. And when I am satisfied with the running I will drill the holes for the tie bar and droppers etc. I have the basic Bachman DC controller and plenty of DC Loco s to test the track.   Best. Wishes. Kevin

Hi Kevin,
Taken from the "Worm Runner"s Digest". Circa 1964-5, which tabulated Bugere's, Murphy's and Sod's laws. I take solace  in the fact that one of the most used (and abused) statistical tests, Student's t-test, was formulated by an employee of the Guinness brewery in Dublin. Presumably it involved extensive testing and sampling. 

Farish points - better looking than the Peco ones. As was the track.

Nigel

Hi Nigel.   Thank you. I did prefer the Farish points, but, it is like the difference between a Nikon camera and a Canon camera.   Best wishes. Kevin
