The peanut gallery have been tossing a variety of ideas for module plans, which have started expanding somewhat. I must get them to put some ideas down so that the rest of you can have a look and see what you think.
Without further ado here's something from left field for me.
I've tossed around a plan for a wharf which I think would be quite interesting for a small shunting layout that could fit onto a shelf. It sort of took on a life of its own and soon I had this.
I'll point out that the plans are not to scale, just an indication of possible track plans. The idea stems from the overall layout of Port Chalmers. The station at the bottom could be a bit more complex. the boards are all intended to be 4' by 1'. The top module has a dock on one side, and a series of sheds on the other. This could be placed beside the center module for a shunting layout.
