Hello my friends,
today I like to solve the open question from last week, regarding the dead-end photo.
Since last year, I was looking for an additional log landing side as well as run-around siding. Basically it’s possible to turn trains on the wye, but especially on my Romanian rolling stock, I take care to keep the important stock in the correct direction, like the aux-tenders, which will work only in one direction.
The new siding is placed along the white wall at the right side of the upper garden. There were several reasons to choose this area, as the track is mostly level at this section and it’s located near “the end” of the loop, when running straight up the hill at the wye. The “tail track” will lead back to the wye 2-3 metres ahead. This creates a lot of operational concepts for both logging railroads. More on this will be shown in next weeks post.
The Playmobil house will be replaced by some kind of section house later, maybe to different structures for US and Romanian scenery.
