Tŷ’n-y-Coedcae Goods Shed

Away from the clubrooms TAFKATYS is beavering away on a Goods Shed for Tŷ’n-y-Coedcae and, to help with laying things out in an area where real estate is at a premium he provided LBH with the footprint, which was then transferred onto an Amazon card envelope. In the accompanying images the card indicates the outline of the shed and the position on the track has been drawn on it.

The buffer stop on the middle line is to be removed to provide rail access into the shed (this was always the plan) but there is a pinch point between the corner of the goods shed and the buffer stop on the other siding. Our eagle-eyed chairman noted that the buffer stop earmarked for removal was a bit shorter than its neighbour. So by transferring the short buffer stop over and removing three sleepers of track from the siding the pinch point was eased and the three-wagon capacity could be retained (just!). Hurrah!

Here’s the result of the night’s changes with the footprint the shed no longer impinging on the fiddle yard board, the rule is on the line of the track that will be laid into the shed and the buffer stop is fixed in its new position. LBH is happy with the outcome but unfortunately rather nice short lengths of wall and fence had to be removed.
