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.
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!
