I decided i needed a revers loop outside as i have one in the shed, then i can continuously run in and out of the storage shed without having to revers back up the slope. It was good i had a double slip in storage. DSCF1400.JPG

How did you add the pictures? If you did the top option then it is trickier to delete the duplicated one, but it can be done when editing the post. Best to add each picture Separetely then you have delete button to the right of each one.

I am working on a new goods shed, its slightly larger than i first anticipated so may require a slight track realignment but thats life and even real life i guess. Hopefully pic’s tomorow.

Britain, most of France, Switzerland, Italy and Portugal run left-hand; the rest of Europe runs right-hand, except for Sweden, which is also mostly LH.
I checked Google to refresh my fading memory.

Yes thats what i was thinking, in the recesses of my mind thinking there is some strange flyover on tracks between france and Germany i will work on right hand running and see how. My rack plan needs a tweak here and there. I know single lines are more narrow gauge but on a small track-plan, but twin tracks is better visually .

Correct!

One thing to consider if you use the LGB signals, is that these are configured for RH running as in Germany.

My railway was going to be LH running, but I had to reconsider and I am now driving on the right....

The penny slowly drops why the signals didnt fit beforehand, silly Boy.

I know single lines are more narrow gauge but on a small track-plan, but twin tracks is better visually .
There are a few notable double track sections on Euro NG lines, certainly on the RHB and the SBN. Runig had a good length leaving Luzern to the junction where the LSE left to go Mountain climbing in the Rack section. My beloved Harz has at least 3 short sections of double track but these are individual single lines that run parallel to each other for short distances. Then in Ireland there was the Cork Bkackrock and Passage that had a good run from Cork as ack but this was a suburban commuter line so that was to be expected. Horses for courses I guess, personally my choice is single line as on an end to end line it is so much more challenging (interesting) to run timetables on. But if your need is to just watch trains going round and round and round on your line then double track is the thing for you. Oh and on a single line for sighting in Germany the signals can be on the wrong side of the line, but you need a marker to advise the driver that is so!
