Very sad, David, but I wish your Mother-in-law better health.

Maybe losing the room wasn't that bad. I am now building a compact terminal layout in a corner of the bedroom. For details check out my blog at www.pennvaleblog.co.uk

I like the track plan and, as far as the fiddle yard goes, can only suggest you swivel the layout through 180 degrees and have a 'bolt on' fiddle yard you can add only when operating the layout.
I, too, used to have 'fun' with flexitrack in SCARM with the track end waving around all over the place but have subsequently managed to tame it :D

Yesterday was the first run through of the schedule using the combination of my own software and JMRI.  Read about it on my blog at www.pennvaleblog.co.uk

Being an old analogue dinosaur there's a lot of this waaaayyyyy over my head but I'm enjoying the blog. Have fun and try not to upset your other half too much with the extended fiddle yard!

Well, at 73 I should be a dinosaur but, fortunately, got into this computer stuff when I was young enough to understand it!
