Thanks Andrew, I might have to lengthen the back shunt a tad but from what Alan has said I shouldn't have one.  :confusedsign:  I thought this was going to so easy  :'(

Don't panic Caz, if you intend the tram to simply pull in in front of the station and the reverse out, you don't need either the Backshunt of the set of points at the right either!

Everyone calm down, drink more wine, watch some trams and think about it again!  :)

Three trams go on the micro layout トミーテックポートラ DCC続行運転

Don't know why I'm on this thread as have no idea what I'm talking about but am becoming intrigued. Might have to get some...arrrh!

More money!

Cheers Weave

Your trams don't seem to do the Straight Line thing very well, perhaps they had the wine instead of the rest of us!  :dighole:

I would have expected a scissors or two points at the junction and then two platforms if that was the concern (so either can leave in either direction in any order). That's fairly typical for modern trams but I don't know about historically and also takes less space than a runaround.

Not sure if there's a better place to put this, but here's a mixture of stuff running on 103mm Tomix curves.



In order of appearance:

 -   Modemo Tokyo Toden 6000 series
 -   Modemo Tokyo Toden 8800 series
 -   Modemo Enoden 100 series
 -   Kato Duewag Tram
 -   Kato Portram
 -   Tomytec LRT-04 tram chassis
 -   Tomytec TM-10 chassis
 -   Fleischmann BR212 (!)

Controller is an old Tomix one which doesn't have good low-speed control.

To my untrained eye the last one bore more than a parsing resembalance to a Clayton or do I need new glasses.   :-[

If you search for e.g. "lima n gauge clayton" you'll find Lima's "fake Clayton" which is a repaint of the vaguely similar German locomotive into BR blue and green.
