All of the above references to metric vs imperial, mm, etc are totally off topic.

The OP has said what is available.

This is not the thread for a discussion about such issues.

Please address the original post.

Great Work Allen ...

 I Have taken the plunge and Put the forum in for a large one ...

Ideal to display the full length pendos from Ben And Mike ...

Great idea for minimum space ...

Cheers

Dear NGF

I have now released the price list for the Nelevators. Thank you for all your input. I have taken all your comment seriously and have tried to accomodate as many of your suggestions as possible. The prices include everything needed to complete the assembly; all track, power supplies. Nut screws and bolts! We,ve had to work hard on the design and with component suppliers to drive cost out and although we haven't been able to achieve our target 600 for the basic kit (+track), we have got very close. In addition, we are offering a discount price for eraly supporters.

We need 50 adopters now to give us the confidence to take the project forward.

Please have a look at the price list on the web site www.nelevation.com . Theres a link in the Order form section.

Thanks again for your support.

Allen


"Dear Mum, Sister, Brother, Neighbours, Homeless man, Prime Minister and of course Santa/Father Christmas (Most important).....

For Christmas this year I would like 2 of these. I know it is a lot to ask so I am willing to compromise and accept medium length instead of long. Do not fail me!"

Am I the only person already picturing the use of one just to store extra stock like on a long length Freight train? The benefit for someone like myself where I have length but not much width (make of that what you will) means good length "fiddle yard" area and still good curves where as currently I have 1 full length and more shorter tracks.

Having grown up in the UK then lived in the metric world since I was 18, the only time I ever feel the need to use the old money is when thinking about longer distances in the UK, which only feel right in miles.

Anyway for me a full-length train is 62 cm, or a 4-car Shinkansen, or loco + three as coaches (four if I'm feeling adventurous). I could conceivably have a layout which could run much longer trains, but as  I want more than one station, shorter works better.

Unfortunately, while I have (or am planning) a storage yard which would benefit from something like this, I'd need the unit to be mostly below the baseboard, as the storage yard will be directly beneath an existing section of layout and only has about 100mm of "headroom". I've no idea if that would be mechanically feasible.

The design sounds as if potentially it could be altered to suit your needs, Squiddy.
Currently 6/11ths is below baseboard level with 5/11ths above but providing your baseboard construction would support the extra weight distribution below maybe Allen could confirm if the 'exit line' from the Nelevation could be amended to be the 1st or even 2nd road :hmmm:

Don't forget that the bottom storage line has got to get to the 'exit' level, so I don't think there is much scope to shave anything off the top or bottom unless you cut down on the number of levels.

I think the solution would need to be similar to a paternoster-style lift, with the exit at the top.

I can't make up my mind which way to go my current layout would suite a medium one but my next project would gain from a large one, but this new project is about 2 years down the line. :hmmm:

Well, you won't get one until the middle of next year so that would give it a pretty short residence on the current layout.

That is what I thought it was when I first saw it !
But instead it is a (two) vertically mounted traverser (s  side-by-side) with a cunning belt + shelves construction instead of a baseboard ? ??

with the exit at the top.
umm anywhere ? bottom, up or down either side for this application, which would be a start/stop motion.

I think the paternoster entry/exit is simplest at the top cos then it is easier to make a continuous lift where the passengers can more easily step on and off ? (something like that, long time since I came across them ! )

Wrong ! I must be mistaking with something else, cos according to
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paternoster
" Passengers can step on or off at any floor they like"

Yeah, well anywhere I guess, in my case the top is the only logical place (and for anyone else who needs a largely below-baseboard solution).

Anyway, if feasible that would presumably require completely different design, tooling etc. so not getting my hopes up.

And me, I have a load of points , motors and DCC decoders surplus so not sure if to sell or keep for a huge layout in the future., :D
Geominster was my first project which has now been dismantled.

Having learnt so much from Geominster this is the new project.
