Traverser -an extension!?

After making the traverser and testing its capacity, I felt that I would like to find a way to enlarge it slightly, mainly to hold four Mk1 and Mk2 coaches and a medium size Loco.

After much testing and finding some raw materials I began to test a few ideas. Although limited by having only a small amount of wood, I managed to come up with a prototype that would allow a four inch extension and an end stop.

Below are some photographs of the extension, albeit without actually gluing the extra piece on to the traverser.IMG_1674

Well, that’s it, four coaches and a Class 31 is now fine – certainly looks better than three. I now need to decide whether to buy some more wood and make a prototype¬† 5 or 6 inch!
