    Hobby Holidays, supplied me with some in 4mm, so it might be worth contacting them to see if they do them in 7mm.

    I've had a bit of a fiddle with the fiddle yard plan (sorry). First an explanation of the lines, the green ones are for the copper clad that we will be using in the fiddle yard as sleepers, around the points it will be done to suit the location. The blue lines are BBJs, these lines are important to check that we don't have any conflicts with points and BBJs.
    Looking at the H/S (head shunt) end , it looks like we have a conflict in box K5 normally all we would do is move the point along an inch or so but that could introduce a conflict in box F7, so it's going to be a bit of head scratching (cant go to the pub or club (model rail) to talk it over.
    Looking at the station end , we do have a conflict in box F9 with the point that runs into box G8. With this one we may have two options [1] move the point to be toe to toe with the point in box E9, this will put the point vees on or near to the BBJ. Or [2] move the point towards the H/S end by about 2" .

    Any other ideas on the back of a £5 note please.

    Keep safe and smiling,
    the more you smile it makes people wonder what you've been up to.
