I’ve been putting in a lot of time on the layout recently so this morning I decided to get some wagons out and pull a train around the curve into Queens Wharf and Morpeth. It would pay to keep in mind that neither of these locos has ever pulled a train and most of the wagons haven’t travelled much further than down the length of Queens Wharf or Morpeth yard and back. Most have been built and then stored in boxes. None of the stock on the layout has ever done a circuit or run for much longer than 5 or 6 meters. As you’d expect there were numerous issues and I’ve really got to put some work into couplers and buffers. This exercise has also pointed out to me how relatively small is my collection of rolling stock.
