The train comes out of mine at right.
Goes up the track to where the house is now. There will be a sector plate inside a building.
Shunts wagon onto the incline (white ruler). Wagons goes up incline.
At the top it goes into the tippler and gets emptied into the bins behind the stamp battery.

And here is the baseboard with the back scene added. I can cut in a straight line. The curve at the end is so it fits in the back of my small hatch back .
Gerry Bullock wrote:One question Glen relating to operation. I take it that incline will disappear below baseboard surface to allow wagon to be shunted onto Incline wagon or whatever it's called

Incidentally have had to cancel NZ trip in 2008. Decided that 6'3" and old bones don't fit well into a possible 31" seat pitch for 14 hours Sorry to miss seeing your effort. Looks great.

Solution 1 - hold the skip body & not the wheels - move the angle from above the wheels to just above the top of the skips when they are sitting in the tipple cage

More inspiration required??
